Anatolian Yastiks

Turkish pile yastiks from the Collection of Dennis Dodds and Zinaida Vaganova. They are from varying regions of Anatolia. 

BELOW: This yellow-ground example is from Central Anatolia, circa 1825-50, and displays a design similar to two other yastiks in the collection. The overall lattice pattern may be a variant derived from the "Lotto" arabesque style that became popular in 16th century Turkish carpets. The descriptive name is from Italian Renaissance painter Lorenzo Lotto, who used rugs of this design in some of his pictures.

BELOW: Gordes region, in the Mejidieh style, referring to the reign of Sultan Abdul Mejid I, 1835-61. The palette imitates that of earlier Ottoman silk velvet (chatma) yastiks made in the 16th -- 18th c. Several examples of this type are known and some have woven dates. One is dated "1879." Another yastik of this type has an inscription in Greek.
