SENNEH, Northwest Persian
4' 2" x 6' 5"
127cm x 196cm
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
Exceptional in every way and in extraordinarily good condition, this quintessential Senneh rug woven in Northwest Persian Kurdistan has an absolutely mesmerizing visual effect. It offers a very seldomly encountered 160-year-old provenance and the renowned supple weave that the very finest antique carpets from this region achieve. Connoisseurs will appreciate the petit point detail work throughout, which is most pronounced in its border suite. As well, certain precious dyes of this virtuosically hued piece, mostly notably the pastel rose and soft, radiant yellows have held their delicate color intact and the exceptionally potent, nearly black midnight indigo. The symphonic display of these and other accent hues are framed by a singular spacious and muted border, that presents unusually painterly blossom meanders with iconic boteh forms softly and seamlessly integrated.
