ANTIQUE ISFAHAN, CIRCA 1950, 5'1" X 7'5", 156 X 226 CM
Item Details
Description
Provenance: Isfahan, Persia. Date: circa 1950. Knot Density (sq inch): 480. Weave: hand-knotted. Warp (foundation): pure silk. Pile: virgin wool. Dimensions (ft): 5'1" x 7'5". Dimensions (cm): 156 x 226. Production time: 14 months. ________ Among the finest handmade rugs ever made, Isfahan (Esfahan) rugs are the pinnacle of the Persian rug. In an enchanted city renowned for its taste and finesse, these rugs are of great delicacy and utmost intricacy. Isfahan's city holds pride of place in the Persian rug industry because of its rich history and reputation dating back to the 16th century. Most Isfahan rugs are finely detailed in wool and silk, often woven on a base of pure silk. Until the middle of the 20th-century, colours were mostly bold with red and blue motifs on the ubiquitous beige. Still, at the sight of curvilinear vines snaking over an elegant field around an exquisite medallion, the word 'Isfahan' tends to spring to one's mind. Patterns include pictorial and tree-of-life schemes, as well as the Shah Abbas field with its floral vines.
Condition
Overall very good condition. Good full pile throughout. Minimal abrash on red border. Fringes on both ends are original. One inch of fringe is missing from one end. Both sides are original and complete. The rug is clean and floor ready.
