Doris Leslie Blau Collection Samarkand Traditional Design Handmade Wool Rug N11611 13'0" × 17'6" $55,000
Although made in the 21st century, this magnificent rug stays true to the rich and extraordinary tradition of Samarkand designs. As befits a samarkand rug from the faraway oasis town which is located at the former famed Silk Route, this one is permeated with influences from many cultural circles, including Persian, Indian or Chinese.
The vast main field of this mesmerizing creation is occupied by a pronounced yet utterly graceful design of four circular medallions surrounded by a trellis formed of subtle flowering vines and pomegranates – a Persian symbol of fertility. This majestic composition is enclosed within a series of decorative borders containing a far-eastern fret pattern and tiny speckles. The color palette completes the design and emphasizes its elegant character with washed-out orchid, sandy beige and touches of chocolate brown.
The modern carpet pattern was thoroughly hand-crafted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan which is a guarantee of its ever-lasting quality and uniqueness. This oversized carpet will be perfect for ample interiors where it will have a chance to fill the space with its recherché charm.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of original modern rugs in many styles and materials. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
