Persian carpets are the crown of the entire rug realm and the one before your eyes is a true jewel in that crown. Everything in this antique rug – from the size, through masterful execution, to the pattern and color palette – is absolutely royal. This awe-inspiring piece invites us to the enchanting world of the Oriental design art.
Starting from the perimeter and moving inwards we can visually experience the unfolding curvilinear flowery pattern covering the whole magnificent field. We are pampered with classic antique carpet motifs such as lotus flowers, Shah Abbas or palmettes, all expertly crafted in the tiniest details. The main field stands out thanks to the crimson color of the background which beautifully exposes the many hues of the pattern. All the borders, kept in ivory beige, balance the pronounced and abundant composition.
The more one looks into this wonder of Persian weaving craft, the more he is mesmerized with its glory and excellence. It exemplifies some of the most desired characteristics of Heriz rugs, including the ever-lasting quality owed to the hand-making of the finest wool according to traditional weaving techniques. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind Persian rug for your home, you should seek no further.
