Rugs have been woven in Turkey since the 13th century, following the arrival of nomadic tribes from Central Asia. Turkish carpets were highly influenced by the Greeks, who dominated carpet manufacturing at that time. The carpets often employ geometrical motifs and are made of wool, cotton, and silk. They are almost always tied with a Turkish knot. A selection of Turkish carpets will be featured in the upcoming Eclectic Variety Auction, offered by William Bunch Auctions.
Another featured item in the sale is a pair of etchings by Ludwig Meidner. The Expressionist artist is known for his dark urban landscapes and portraits. The available lot, executed in 1924, is a pair of portraits. Also available is a Japanese Imari ware vase. Imari is a style of porcelain named after the Japanese port from which it was shipped to the West in the late 17th century. Imari ware is characterized by images of cranes, fish, women, flowers, and gnarled tree branches. To view each lot and register to bid, visit William Bunch Auctions.
