Beautiful and Elaborate Fine Antique Persian Silk and Wool Tehran Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Antique Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1920 – The luscious sheen and rich color of this antique Persian rug compliment the lovely sweeping floral pattern in this silk and wool rug from Tehran. Woven in the 1920’s, the classic, delicate pattern of this antique Oriental carpet gives it a touch of elegance that will carry through into any space.
The floral pattern in the heart of this luxurious rug is carried out with precision, adding balance and formality to the design. The floral theme of the antique Persian Tehran rug is found throughout the geometric divisions of the field and the main borders. The design is carefully precise and symmetrical in both color and design.
The artist created several layers of interest throughout the antique Persian silk and wool Tehran rug. Larger floral motifs draw the eye to the symmetry and balance of the medallion layout. This defines the architecture of the design. However, as one looks more closely, the artist used increasingly smaller layers of flowers, all arranged in formal patterns that provide exquisite detail, almost giving it a millefleur effect.
The rich burgundies, blues, salmons, browns, and ivory of the Safavid period inspired rug creates a magnificent explosion of color that allows the artist to render the design in fine detail. Even the smallest of floral patterns within the design contains details that bring them to life, and that add depth and texture to the design.
The use of silk provides a shimmer that adds a feeling of refinement embodied in the piece. This is the perfect area rug to compliment a formal room setting. The sweeping curves and striking colors are the perfect way to pull the theme of the room together by creating an eye-catching center of focus.
