Northwest Persian Antique Rug
3' 1" x 4' 6" (94cm x 137cm) Circa 1900
("New Arrivals Gallery") Distinctive antique Heriz rugs woven in the Persian northwestern Azerbaijan region are perennially popular choices among our clientele. Diminutively-sized pieces such as this little gem are especially uncommon. It contains imaginative and graphic designs that are seldom found together in rugs of this type, including poignant "flame" palmette pendants that lend the composition a touch of dramatic flair. These elements are artfully set upon a soft golden camelhair field, presenting a sophisticated color palette that includes a luminous cerulean blue, dusky rose, teal, and burnt sienna. Ideally suited for both modern contemporary and traditional homes, this enchanting survival provides a fascinating window to a bygone era.
