Good afternoon folks, greetings from Fort Lauderdale - Florida

I just joined in my quest of finding information about several rugs I bought in Istanbul 20 years ago! Wow! Has it really been that long? During all those years I have moved to different countries losing my purchased invoices, certificates and all related information in the process. I am hoping some of you could help me identify the region, quality, and any other kind of information that can help me with the value and authenticity of these rugs. I started this process on my own, becoming overwhelmed and fascinated at the same time with the amount of details and the beauty of the art. I would be so grateful to you all for your time and effort.

Files 0006 and 0012 (Handwoven - 324 KPSI - 82 x 55 )
Files 0022 and 26 (Handwoven - 225 KPSI - 82 x 46 1/2)
Files 0057 and 65 (Handwoven - 121 KPSI - 98 x 67)
Files 0045 and 48 (Handwoven - 81 KPSI - 102 1/2 x 50)

I have others but this is a good start - THANK YOU SO MUCH

Hello,
Welcome to the forum! You have quite a few interesting rugs. It is generally the policy to post one rug per post with several pics of the rug for identification. Also, please include pics of the back of the rug and the corner and the sides and Fringe and the pile. Image 22 appears to be a south central Turkish piece from Karapinar. I cannot ascertain it's age from the pics of the front alone, but the brighter colors and condition appears to indicate that it's age is no earlier than 1950's. Please post more pics and the forum community can give you more information.
Best!!
