Antique Persian Kilim, Origin: Persia, Circa: Early 20th Century – Here is an exciting and beautifully woven antique Oriental rug – an antique kilim, woven in Persia during the early years of the twentieth century. Characterized by a meticulously woven and compelling composition, this antique Persian kilim is an exciting example of an important and distinct development in the word of antique Oriental rugs. This evocative antique Persian Kilim showcases an extraordinary collection of powerful protection symbols and esoteric motifs woven in an inviting family of warm colors and earthy neutrals. Lozenge-like dragon motifs with arthropodan extensions seamlessly blend together to create an endless tiled repeating pattern with radiant latchhook rows that form stunning counter change figures. The precisely aligned triumvirate of stacked tiles is perfectly symmetric and illustrates the principle of infinite rapport with a pattern that seems to extend off the field. Charming lozenge-and-triangle end pieces filled with miniscule right-angle symbols tie together the iconographic story, which incorporates so many diverse aspects of weaving cultures. Beautifully woven, this antique Persian kilim is an attractive and representative example.
