Antique Northwest Persian Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: 1900’s – Woven during the turn of the 20th century, this antique carpet from Northwest Persia is an exemplary representation of regional design traditions. The stark tan field is offset by a bold stacked medallion decorated with symbolic details woven in a combination of bright colors. Stepped borders and extended hooks highlight the edge of the lozenge medallion leading the transition to the poly chromatic borders and wide guard-bands that play an important part in the overall composition. Intriguing borders decorated with a series of fragmented double ram’s horn motifs create an interlocking pattern that forms a series of zigzagging Greek key figures. Clear white accents paired with a motley combination of celadon, blue, brick red and earthy browns complete the classic facade of this antique Persian carpet.
