Vintage Art Deco Design Persian Khorassan Rug by Saber, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Late 20th Century – This gorgeous nature-themed Khorassan rug by the Mashad Saber Workshop has an Art Deco feel that would complement a historical or contemporary design. Mashad is a city in Iran in the province of Khorassan that has a rug-making history that goes back many centuries. The province is known for producing some of the finest rugs in the world. This rug is the work of master designer Master Abas Ali Saber, also known as Saber of Mashad.
Saber began his workshop in Mashad over 70 years ago. His workshop was large, and he had several looms in the suburbs of Mashad, too. At one time, Master Saber had around 60 looms throughout the city. After the death of Saber, Master Ahmad Bazmi took over management of the workshop, as per an agreement with Saber’s heirs.
Saber rugs are known for large size and feature both medallion designs and all-over patterns, such as this one. They are characterized by a tight weave and high knot count. This allows the details of the design to stand out. Vines and florals against a beige or neutral background are popular designs in later works by the artist.
This is a masterpiece that was produced in the latter half of the 20th century. You will notice the signature at the top of the rug in red, which is characteristic of Saber workshop rugs. Pieces produced in the Saber Workshop have a high collectible value, and they are beautiful as interior design pieces.
This breathtaking Persian rug with its harmonious colors and natural theme would make the perfect foundation for a room that features other elements of the natural world, such as exotic woods, terracotta, and stone. It has an abstract design that mimics falling leaves. The artist created motion by the placement of the leaves and perspective by varying the size of the motifs.
This piece is the perfect touch to traditional décor or one that is contemporary. It creates a calming, balanced feel in the space and stands out for its precision and masterful design. This rug will bring a touch of nature into your home, office, or art collection.
