65- Flokja Patterned

Description: This piece is either an incomplete carpet with one panel missing or was intentionally constructed this way to serve as a divan cover. As the piece has much wear, it is likely that the third panel was later removed due to damage. In any case, the piece surely served as a sitting and sleeping mat as it is still the size of a twin bed. A sunburst effect is created on a bright pink background by a darker, beetroot red section surrounded by 10 cornflower blue, orange, and yellow forms, perhaps crocuses on three sides.

Estimated Age: Early 20th century
