Northwest Persian Antique Rug
3' 6" x 3' 3" (107cm x 99cm) Circa 1920
This expertly crafted, nearly square Serab rug is sure to delight those who favor rugs using undyed camelhair. Its nuanced palette, balanced delicacy of design, and innate luminosity make it particularly striking. A sapphire blue hexagonal medallion rests upon an ethereal latticework pattern in the field. Inside are elementally abstracted botanical forms arranged in casual symmetry. A chain-like design outlined in teal contains motifs like ancient Egyptian amulets. Here and there appear enigmatic forms that may well depict yurts or other nomadic dwellings. In the unadorned outer band, a rich color shift from mocha to dark brown contributes mightily to this charming rug's intrigue and appeal. Its heavy pile and extremely durable construction make it ideal for even the most heavily trafficked areas of a home.
