Oversized Antique Persian Meshad Handmade Wool Rug BB5934 14'2" × 22'2" $50,000
This turn of the century antique Persian Meshad rug has a densely spaced all-over design of the herati pattern in rust and blue against a field of black. The herati pattern, also known as the “fish pattern,” is a common motif of Oriental rug weaving. A rust border with lush floral motifs contributes to the elaborate and traditional look of the antique carpet.
The Persian carpet comes from Meshad, the administrative seat of the Khorassan province throughout the centuries, and home to many well-known Oriental large rustic area rug workshops. The towns of Amoghli, Khamenei, Makhmalbaf, Saber and Zarbaf produced antique oriental 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.
