Antique Persian Kurdish Rug, Country Of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Turn of the 20th Century – Here is a fascinating, beautiful antique rug – antique Kurdish rug woven by the Kurds of Persia around the turn of the twentieth century. Kurdish rugs are among the most collectible and sought-after antique rug styles, as they have long been valued for their aesthetic authenticity, for their commitment to tribal to design. Tribal design in antique Oriental rugs does not necessarily imply any one design style, but rather suggests that the composition is influenced by and woven with tribal design preferences, which may include abstract geometric figures, bright colors, and a marked asymmetry. This delightful example from Persian Kurdistan boasts most of these characteristics – most especially the penchant of abstract, geometric figures. The best such example here is in the large central medallion, which is an especially asymmetrical piece. Set against a beautiful soft red field, it stands out boldly and confidently. Further tribal design elements appear throughout the field as well as the borders, beautifully rendered and timelessly appealing. A fascinating tribal rug, this antique Persian piece is a testament to traditional design.
