2'9" x 4'1" Antique Ottoman Rug Associated with the "Young Turks"

SKU: WH202257
Excluding Sales Tax
  • A fine 2'9" x 4'1" antique Ottoman rug, dated 1324 AH / 1906 CE, commemorating the formation in 1906 in Salonica of the Ottoman Freedom Society, a group of young "Ottoman patriots" who opposed the rule of Sultan Abdulhamid in Istanbul. This group would soon merge with the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), another group of young Ottoman intellectuals of similar mind who had earlier emigrated to Paris (note the prominence of the Fleur de Lis in the design of the rug). Soon, these political revolutionaries came to be known collectively as Jeunes-Turcs ("Young Turks"). Note the motto of the Young Turks inscribed in Ottoman script on the field: "Liberty, Equality, Justice."

    This carpet is a unique historical document and is likely the only piece of its kind in existance.
