    Kula and Ghiordes prayer rugs were highly popular in the 19th century and produced in large numbers by specialised workshops. In this example, the dark green, open mihrab field is narrow and comparatively small. A floral stylised lamp is suspended from the apex of the steep stepped arch. The pale green section above it and the beige-ground surround of the field are decorated with carnations; the white motifs are knotted in white cotton yarn. The narrow stripe design of the main border is a typical feature of Kula prayer rugs. – Signs of age and wear, various repiled areas, uniformly low pile. Repiled side finishes and end borders.
