Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present our newest addition to the Featured Arrivals collection, a consummately crafted early Persian Senneh carpet. It is always exceptionally rare to find a very well-preserved Persian art rug from the first half of the 19th century, especially a piece so masterful as this masterfully crafted Senneh. Its particularly delicately drawn field offers a unique allover design of repeating pinwheels, drawn with incredible, pinpoint precision, giving this 175-year-old piece an ethereal presence. Very old Senneh rugs are prized for their extraordinarily tight knotting and their “handkerchief” handle. As a result, they are often displayed on the wall or over furniture so that the astonishing craftsmanship can be enjoyed close up. This beautiful piece would make a stunning addition to any collection, the versatile large area size making it possible to display as a piece of magnificent wall art or on the floor.
