Long Shabby Chic Antique Persian Northwest Carpet 47261
Antique Persian Northwest Carpet, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Early 20th Century– A tessellating pattern of stylized feathers fills the body of this Persian rug, each quill bent at the base to tuck between the tips of the next row of plumes, set off by a cream background. Faded lines cross both horizontally and vertically like highlights from the sun, giving the rug an antique air. A black and gold band edges the broad central design, itself filled with linked feathery diamonds and trimmed with straight, thin lines of brown. The next, wider border completes the Northwest rug with a brown and gold design with strongly floral elements and jagged shapes reminiscent of leaves.
