Breathtaking Fine Floral Medallion Vintage Persian Silk Qum Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Vintage Persian Rug, Circa Date: Late 20th Century This exquisite vintage Persian silk Qum rug has a level of detail and elegance that reflects a centuries-old tradition of fine craftsmanship. The city of Qum was a latecomer in the industry of Persian rugs, but it soon established itself for designs that mimic the Masters of the late 19th century. This breathtaking vintage Persian rug was created in the late 20th century. Its classic color scheme is formal enough for any estate or fine collection.
The vintage area rug is made from silk, which gives it both durability and creates a sheen that reflects light in the room like other material can do. One of the features that makes Persian silk rugs from Qum so popular is that they have a stiff handle that gives them visual weight in the design. Silk can be spun into extremely fine threads, allowing the artist to create almost blinding levels of detail, as you can see in this piece.
This magnificent silk rug is the perfect foundation for a formal dining hall or any traditional room setting. This finely woven rug would be at home with your fine heirloom antiques or in a contemporary design to add a vintage element.
