TEHRAN VASE RUG, North Central Persian
4' 7" x 7' 0"
(Connoisseur-Caliber) Among the most seldom encountered and highly coveted antique Persian rug styles, the best antique carpets from the North Persian city of Tehran (Teheran) demonstrate an exquisite, jewel-like clarity that is rare in any artistic medium. This resplendent area size Oriental rug gem aptly demonstrates the consummately sculpted detail, incredibly fine weave and luminous wool surface that enable this virtuoso expression, with enrapturing avian forms emerging from the lush foliage of its prized vase design. Drawn with animated, expressive nuance, each bird is subtly different. Delightfully, this century-old antique rug is in perfect condition. (Featured in Claremont catalog Vol. 24, No. 2, page 13).
