An unusual nine saf prayer kilim from Sivas in east Anatolia

An old nine saf kilim from Sivas in east Anatolia. 

This unusual type of kilim with an archaic saf design goes back to at least the 18th century and one is featured in Yanni Petsopoulos’s 1991 book on Anatolian kilims. While making a spectacular wall hanging, the kilim is in very good condition so can also be used on the floor. 1920s/30s. 364 x 176cm. No 6469.
