Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present our newest addition to the Featured Arrivals collection, a consummately crafted early Persian Senneh rug. Bearing an “old world” sense of grace and ethereal beauty, this extremely early antique Senneh, an oriental style revered in the 19th century for breath-taking delicacy and refinement, is a rare rug we purchased from an august private collection. The subtlety of the rug’s highly restrained palette, in combination with the meticulously fine weave and petite point design of blossoming boteh (“Seed of Life” motifs), reveal the consummate skill of a master weaver and true artisan. The simplicity and spaciousness of the main vermilion border provide perfect balance to its shimmering, gossamer interior. The petite area size of this rug lends it a great diversity of use, as it will look equally at home as a beautiful accent on the floor or hung as a piece of wall art.
