Antique Persian Kurdish Rug, Persia, Late 19th Century – Modeled after Persia’s formal city carpets, this sophisticated antique Kurdish rug from Persia has a worldly visage that incorporates formal influences and rustic traditions. The beautifully abrashed desert-colored field showcases a mossy green medallion that is flanked by grand pendants and decorated with a whimsical arabesque.

This splendid example of Kurdish weaving artistry has an unassuming style that effortlessly incorporates a variety of regional and cultural influences.
