The overall motifs of the present lot are highly stylized and the execution primitive making this a unique example from Western Anatolia in the 19th century. The dominant central "shield" design, prayer niche and octagon border are seen in earlier Kazak prototypes and in rugs from Bergama. The slightly unnoticeable barber pole prayer niche at the top is intriguing and is usually more prounounced in rugs woven in this region. The structure and coloration make this undeniably West Anatolian. However, the design and lack of related examples makes this difficult to precisely date.
