Cappadocia rugs are very much like Konya rugs:thick pile,large knots,soft color palette and lots of yellow and red.This particular one has an interesting tree of life design on an abrashed madder field.A light aubergine border surrounds the center.The yellow main border employs multicolor back-to-back  "C" design.The color variations in the main border are original.There is no minor guards but instead plain brown and ivory lines are present.The wide abrashed sidecords and the original ends are intact.All the colors are from natural sources.The condition is good with the exception of a small area having a low and even pile.A strong,austere and powerful example of its type.
