STRUCTURAL STUDY OF TRANSYLVANIAN GROUP AND IMPLICATIONS
FOR ATTRIBUTIONS TO ANATOLIAN CARPET PRODUCTION CENTERS
Presented by Ali Riza Tuna & Stefano Ionescu

Abstract : This paper is grounded on the information assembled during the preparation of the volume Antique Ottoman Rugs in Transylvania , regarding over 250 examples of the “Transylvanian” group from Romania, Hungary , Germany and also from Turkish museums. The study shows the strong correlation existing in some cases between design and technical features, such as “stitchlike wefts” and weft colour changes, which can be used as “markers” of different groups. Extended statistical data , regarding these features is presented and analysed for the fist time , helping a more accurate attribution of “Transylvanian” group rugs to specific weaving centers from Anatolia.
