Samarkand Navy Blue, Red and Orange Hand Knotted Wool Rug BB6977 4'8" × 8'4" $12,000
This beautiful vintage rug is a classic example of the exceptional Samarkand artistry. Located at the former Silk Road connecting China and the Mediterranean, the Central-Asian weaving center had a chance to absorb miscellaneous aesthetics and designs from various cultural circles, which is reflected in the vintage Samarkand carpet before your eyes.
Its main field carrying an allover pattern of pomegranates – the oriental symbol of fertility and prosperity – is enclosed within a multiple border adorned with architectural and floral motifs exuding both Asian and Middle-Eastern vibes. The color palette of navy blue and shades of red and orange is elegant and lively. Such a composition is not too timid nor bold, just perfect for all connoisseurs of timeless designs with a character.
Masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques, the vintage Samarkand rug has survived until this day in excellent condition which is the best indicator of its quality. If properly cared for, the vintage rug will serve its owners for generations, bringing in the warmth and magic of the Samarkand rug craft.
