Alberto and Stefano in front of the mid 17th c. Single-niche ‘Transylvania’

A rediscovered knotted friend…

The Single-niche ‘Transylvanian’ was found by Alberto Boralevi in a private collection in Italy. The rug was recorded as nr. 9 in the 1930 inventory of the Rupea/Reps Parish, made by Julius Bielz. Later on the Parish sold some rugs in order to pay for the church repairs. On an old photo of the rug, from the Parish archives, there is the mention “verkauft Tuduc”.
