Antique Persian Meshad Carpet
Antique Persian Meshad Carpet Description:
This antique Persian Meshad rug features an intricate all-over design of botanical motifs and Oriental abstractions in shades of inky blue and dark beige, against a tan field. A thick main border containing garden imagery and stylized animal patterns in dark beige surrounds the antique carpet and completes its unique, traditional look. The rug comes from Meshad, the administrative seat of the Khorassan province throughout the centuries, and home to many well-known Oriental rug workshops. The towns of Amoghli, Khamenei, Makhmalbaf, Saber and Zarbaf produced antique Persian rugs that feature both symmetrical and asymmetrical knots, as well as multiple borders with eclectic color palettes. Designs are based on classical models and feature color schemes ranging from traditional burgundies and midnight blues to the more contemporary tints of ice blue and beige.
