4' 2" x 6' 11" (127cm x 211cm) Late 19th Century
Price upon request
Skillfully reinventing traditional patterns, this brilliantly conceived, art-level Persian Veramin rug offers a fascinating design. Upon a skillfully-dyed midnight indigo ground, subtle elliptical shapes emerge from the mesmerizing intricacy of its allover field pattern. Multiplying the surprising visual effects in this 19th century rug, a strikingly rhythmic zig-zag pattern created from a repeated pairing of carnation and leaf motifs fill the contrasting ivory corner pieces and border. The fact that this piece was woven without a cartoon underscores the technical and creative virtuosity of its village weaver.
