Northwest Persian Antique Rug
4' 5" x 6' 6" (135cm x 198cm) Late 19th Century
In a masterfully avant-garde departure from usual Senneh patterns, this notable rug is animated by colossally overscale anchor pendants juxtaposed with a small-scale allover design. Within each, lithe bouquets of irises and pansies spring to life in a bright gold-fringed, nearly fleur de lis form. This piece's meticulously fine weave and stylized pinpoint rendering of the beloved classical Herati pattern combine to exhibit a mosaic-like effect. In combination with a richly saturated palette of saturated madder red, cobalt, rose, and deep ocean green, reveals the consummate skill of a master weaver and true artist. Senneh rugs are known for much more than their expressiveness of pattern and lustrous surface, but also an astonishing suppleness and refined tactile qualities. This memorable Persian town rug offers remarkable condition and the perfect dimensions for an entryway or to highlight that special space.
