Antique Persian Senneh Rug, Origin: Persia – This extraordinary antique Persian Senneh carpet is an outstanding example of the distinctive designs and unique style associated with Persia’s western frontier and the city of Sanandaj. Hairline details and impeccably drawn botanical figures are skillfully worked together in a tightly spaced, astoundingly detailed repeating pattern that reflects the style and design talents of this antique rug. Rivers of manila-tone ground trickle through the composition and separate the ornate repeating figures. Lavish botehs with floral spangles and heavy decorations are alternated with compound floral figures that resemble flamingoes with long curving necks. Salmon pinks and blushing peach tones blend beautifully with the earthy brown and bistre hues that are synonymous with Senneh’s regal style. Protective crenellated-fence inner borders and minor flower-and-vine outer borders complete the regal western Persian design.
