Antique Persian Meshad Rug

Antique Persian Meshad Rug Description:

A late 19th century Persian Meshad rug, the indigo blue field with an allover trellis of flowering vinery, palmettes and bold feathery leaves within a camel floral motif border.

Meshad antique area rugs are 'jufti' knotted, a technique used in antique Khorassan carpets and antique Doroksh rugs as well.

With a good supply of soft wool and high quality craftsmen, Meshad has had a reputation as one of the most prolific, creative, and highly stylized sources of beautiful Persian carpets making them easily identified throughout the centuries.
