Antique Persian Meshad Carpet BB7574 11'2" × 16'8" $60,000

This Persian Meshad rug was created circa 1900. Its abrashed tan field carries an overall garden curvilinear design of elongated flowering vinery, shrubs, and trees, enclosed within a midnight blue border of palmettes and lush flowering vinery.

The rug was carefully hand-knotted out of the finest wool in accordance with traditional weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. A future owner may rest reassured that this piece of venerable Persian art will serve him for generations without any signs of wear.

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. Antique rugs that were executed in the Meshad weaving center are considered the finest of the entire Khorassan province. They usually comprise a cotton foundation and exceptionally tight, asymmetric knot with density reaching 160 000-260 000 knots per square meter, which is a guarantee of everlasting quality. Mashad rugs are famous for their soft and luminous woolen pile – many claim their quality is second to none.
