SENNEH, Northwest Persian
4' 5" x 6' 5"
2nd Quarter, 19th Century
(High-Collectible) It is always exceptionally rare to find a Persian Senneh carpet from the 2nd quarter of the 19th century. Rather than a slightly rustic look and geometric divisions in the field, it has a very elegant, unique allover design. Each of its boteh-formed pinwheels are extraordinarily refined and drawn with incredible, pinpoint precision, giving this magical piece an ethereal presence. Very old Senneh are known for their "handkerchief" handle and are often displayed on the wall or over furniture so that the amazing craftsmanship, such as this piece has, can be enjoyed close up.
