Antique Persian Mashad Rug BB7570 11'10" × 17'5" $100,000
This exquisite antique turn of the century Persian Meshad rug features an elaborate all-over field of floral abstractions, serrated leaves and palmettes in shades of beige and brown against a field of blue. A beige border containing botanical motifs completes the ornate look of this Persian carpet. The antique carpet comes from Meshad, the administrative seat of the Khorassan province throughout the centuries, and home to many renowned Oriental rug workshops. Antique Meshad rugs typically feature the Jufti knot, a “false” knot which is tied onto four warp threads instead of the normal two. Designs are based on classical models but executed in color schemes ranging from traditional burgundies and midnight blues, to the more contemporary tints of ice blue and beige. Meshad weavers frequently signed their work, adding interest and value to these antique Oriental rugs.
