Vintage Silk Samarkand Rug BB7340 10'10" × 12'1" $45,000
Samarkand is a weaving center that sports some of the most iconic and sought-after rug designs in the world. Their effortless charm and bohemian, free spirit are visible at first glance even to a layman’s eye. Samarkand rugs are flowers born in the arid landscape of Central Asia that can become statement pieces in your décor.
The vintage rug before your eyes, made circa 1880, is a classic example of Samarkand craft. Its main field is occupied by an allover pomegranate pattern, believed to provide fertility and bring auspiciousness. Consecutive borders carry floral and geometric designs, exhibiting the diversity of Samarkand artistry, permeated with both Middle-Eastern and Far-Asian influences. Everything is rendered in a rich yet muted color palette featuring beige, green and burgundy. Such a composition will invigorate any space, from classic to contemporary.
Next to gripping design, the vintage rug can boast of refined workmanship. Carefully hand-knotted of wool in accordance with centuries-old techniques, the rug has survived until this day in excellent condition. If maintained properly, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
