One thing that stands out about this vintage rug is the inclusion of the lion and sun on the ends of the rug. The lion and sun design represent Persian royalty and its connection to the divine. The crown was added to this national symbol during the Qajar Dynasty. The Pahlavi Dynasty kept the crown but changed its design in 1925 when they took power from the Qajars. The lion and sun is a symbol that has ancient roots and continued to be used on the Iranian flag until 1979.

This is a magnificent vintage Persian silk Qum rug for many reasons, and it would make a beautiful addition to any collection. Periwinkle is this year’s Pantone Color of the Year, and this vintage Qum rug allows you to bring it into your space with this breathtaking piece. This rug will bring its formality and elegance to any room of the home or public space. It is a smaller piece that could easily be mounted on the wall or used as an accent piece.
