Beautiful And Finely Woven Small Silk and Wool Antique Persian Senneh Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1880 – Intricate layers of patterns and color flow within and around each other to form this stunning Persian Senneh rug. Its complex series of herati fish design patterns create a dazzling array of uniformity that is broken up by the use of alternating background colors and geometric patterns that are seemingly overlaid or layered on top of the rug.

A geometric outlined navy blue anchor medallion is situated in the center of this beautiful silk and wool rug. The medallion itself radiates the anchor geometric shapes from its top and bottom points, like a star blinking as a beacon in the night sky.

The blue medallion is positioned on top of another, larger diamond. This second diamond is what makes up the majority of the field. It is set against an ivory background which creates a classic juxtaposition between the darker blue background of the medallion and corners. This contrast of colors gives a feel as through the medallion is levitating above the field which adds a fascinatingly artistic feel of depth to this beautiful antique rug.

The ivory diamond in the field of this fine antique Persian Senneh rug radiates from the center and is almost too grand to be held within. It seems to want to spill over the edges and into the  rich red colored border. The large ivory diamond is flanked at both ends by the blue background corners. These corners echo the design and colors of the central medallion which crates a powerful sense of balance and order.

Once the eye drinks in the overall bold, geometric design, the expert details woven throughout this amazing antique Persian rug are revealed, thread by thread. The vivid, zigzagging outline of the diamond shapes contrasts with the organic flow of the more detailed, efflorescent background.

Tangled floral design patterns interlock in vivid jewel tone color shades of red, yellow, white, and blue. They suggest sprawling vines and lush forest floors, alive with colorful vegetation and soft underfoot. The classic crab design border is dotted with regular intervals of small blossoms to echo the background pattern.

This antique Persian Senneh rug plays light against dark, softness against hard lines and blooming fluidity with stark symmetry. It is truly a study in opposites, yet it all comes together to make a striking, unified whole.

This small size rug carries a strong impact. It is the type of antique rug that is beckoning to be seen. With its beautiful colors, soft texture and complex design, it is sure to enhance any interior design aesthetic.
