Antique Persian Esfahan Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: 17th Century – This splendid little antique Oriental Esfahan rug is a masterpiece of classical Persian rug design. A blue-black circular medallion filled with arabesque vines and flowers is surrounded by richly detailed palmettes and vines against a burgundy ground. Similar palmettes comprise the border, but set against a black ground to echo the medallion. Rarely do design and color converge so effectively. This just may be, perhaps, the smallest complete 17th century carpet, that features both silk and wool pile, available anywhere today.
