Samarkand Purple, Pink and Light Blue Handwoven Wool Rug BB7045 3'8" × 7'7" $12,000
This beautiful vintage rug is a classic example of the exceptional artistry from Samarkand. 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 carries vase motifs – one of the most iconic oriental designs – and pomegranates that symbolize auspiciousness. Everything is enclosed by an elegant double border with botanical motifs. The color palette features light blue accompanied by beige, brown and dusty rose. Such a composition is not too timid nor bold, just perfect for all connoisseurs of timeless designs with 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.
