Tribal And Beautifully Rustic Animal Design Antique North West Persian Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1880 – Just looking at this example right here, it is easy to see why the antique North West Persian rugs are some of the most facinating antique Persian rugs. These rugs usually boast tribal designs and magnificent and happy jewel tone rug colors. As you can see, this specific antique North West Persian area rug lives up to the reputation.
The animal designs features in the rug are magnificently rendered with child like innocence and folk art charm. While the first impression is that these animal designs were created symmetrically the reality is that they are not. As to be expected from the best area rugs that were created by nomadic / semi nomadic people, these facinating area rugs do not rely on, and rarely do they create, symmetry in their beautiful rugs.
Surrounding the field are three facinating borders. The first and more amorphic dragon rug design border is simply magnificent especially since it was created against a light white / ivory color background. This light background creates a fabulous juxtaposition that speak volumes about the weaver who created it. Flanking this border is beautiful paisley rug design that was incorporated through the flowering vine pattern. Rounding out the framing borders is a free flowing floral design guard border that adds that last artistic touch and completes the overall look and feel of this captivating tribal North West Persian rug.
The field itself is adorned with the magnificent animals that we spoke about earlier. These animals and other tribal motifs are floating atop the rustic red color rug field and surround the diamond shaped central motif. This small speckled stripped diamond pattern in the central design is a continuation of the speckled stripped field corners. This creates a facinating artistic tension and a wonderfully balanced feel.
When buying area rugs for the home, especially for people who love color and facinating tribal design, this tribal animal design antique North West Persian rug would be a a phenomenal choice.
