Antique Persian Tehran Rug BB7491 7'8" × 10'3" $40,000
This early 20th-century Persian Tehran rug is a paragon of Persian craft. The rich red field carries an allover trellis of expressive tendrils terminating in stylized and bold feathery split leaves and flowering branches within a red and blue stylized leafy vinery border. This vivid design was executed in accordance with traditional techniques which ensured its uniqueness, quality and authenticity. The rug was carefully hand-knotted out of wool – if properly maintained, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
Antique Tehran rugs set the standard for quality and workmanship. In the late 1800s, the art of Persian weaving experienced a revival of popularity, and Tehran became the locus for Persian rug production. Antique Tehran rugs are not only of high quality, they are also rare. Most high-quality Tehran rugs pre-date 1945. Newer, high-quality Tehran rugs are generally only produced in very small numbers by master-weavers. These antique oriental rugs represent the ultimate beauty and quality considered an essential aspect of Persian carpets.
