Tribal Design Large Vintage Persian Kilim rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: This carpet is dated 1954 – Here is a fantastic and truly unique vintage Persian rug, rendered in unusual proportions. Indeed, the extremely rare size of this piece tells us that it was in fact custom made. Quite likely, this rug was ordered by an individual with the express purpose of giving it as a wedding present. Due to the inscription running along the lower horizontal border, we are able to precisely date this rug to 1954 – or 1374 in the Hijri calendar, as it is denoted on the rug. To boast such a unique and detailed progeny is highly unusual, making this vintage rug something genuinely special. None of this is to speak of the particularly comely, traditional pattern that dances throughout this composition in a gorgeous array of traditional reds, blues, and ivories. A mesmerizing geometric pattern adorns the field, which is surrounded by such a complex series of inner and outer borders that it is simply complementary to the remainder of the piece, rather than dominating the overall action of the composition. This unique vintage Persian rug, with its fascinating progeny and beautiful, traditional design, is truly one of a kind.
