Antique Persian Meshad Blue, Violet, Sandy Beige and Brown Rug BB5523 8'0" × 11'6" $18,000
Undeniable elegance of antique Persian carpets delights regardless of circumstance or time, making them one of Iran’s greatest treasures. Their country of origin is famed for the ancient weaving traditions, which can be traced back to antiquity and early Medieval times. Most Persian carpet-weaving villages located on terrain were a part of the Persian Empire and thus have their own original patterns, developed through centuries. It would be an impossible task to find two identical antique Persian rugs, as every and each one of them is a unique masterpiece.
Hand woven in the heart of Iranian weaving art, the city of Meshad, this Persian carpet astonishes with its beauty. It was made in the early 20th century, circa 1900. Stunning pattern combined with elegant color palette results in a mesmerizing beauty, worthy of a king. The central field is decorated with an allover trellis of medallions, curving flowering vinery and enlarged feathery leaves. The design is framed by a light palmette border, which helps to balance out this opulent pattern. Color palette of this piece is composed of both warm and cold tones. Relaxing blues and violets mix freely with sandy beige and brown, like paints on a canvas.
The size of this antique rug, 8’0″ × 11’6″ (244 × 351 cm), makes it a perfect choice for any type of interior, from modern to traditional.
