Antique Persian Senneh Rug, Origin: Persia – Highly decorative and beautifully restrained, this handsome antique Persian rug captures the regal, well-controlled style of the famous weaving city of Senneh. This remarkable carpet illustrates classical Persian botanical designs with graceful attributes and natural features that became wildly successful in Europe and beyond. Reminiscent of a Gothic woodcarving, the lush allover design features heavy lines and dramatic flourishes. Boughs of foliage with swirling leaves meander across the warm beige field along with ruby berries and luscious boteh fruits fringed by a lashed corona. These magnificent designs display heavy small-scale decorations rendered with a remarkable level of detail and precision. The gravity of the lavish decorations is tempered by the muted masculine colors, which include powdery glaucous greens, warm ochre yellows and regal reds that fit an international standard of elegance.
