Antique Northwest Persian Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Turn of the Twentieth Century – Here is a truly beautiful antique Oriental rug – an antique Northwest Persian rug that was woven in Persia around the turn of the twentieth century. This handsome long and narrow carpet exemplifies the tribal aesthetics that make Northwest Persian rugs so unique and desirable to collectors. Characterized by geometric flourishes throughout, this compelling antique Persian rug features the irregularly proportioned borders and tribal designs that give Northwest Persian carpets so much personality and distinctness. The series of borders is beautifully woven: the primary border is an especially comely shade of ivory, and populated by an exciting tribal pattern. It is flanked by beautifully formed inner and outer borders. All of this takes place around a remarkable field, in which a series of ten stacked and compartmentalized medallions stand one top of the other, each different from the last. The reds and blues here add depth and dimension to the medallions, and also tie them in beautifully with the borders. A unique and exiting piece, this antique Northwest Persian carpet is a truly compelling example.
