Anatolian Yastiks

This fine yastik is from Central Anatolia. c 1825-1850, the interlocking wefts in the sselvages and alternating colors is indicative of the Konya/Capadoccia region. The madder dye, mixed wth a tin mordant gives it a 'rose' glow, was a favored dyestuff and is found many pieces from this area. The high pile, plush, long-staple wool and qulaity of expensive dyes are superior and suggests this was a treasured dowry item. The selvage is an indicator of older weavings from this Central Anatolian region. Very small hole, easily repaired.
