Object Description

A fabulous antique Isfahan rug woven in the master workshops of Isfahan in the first 1/4 of the twentieth century. This is a very finely woven rug. The colours in this antique Isfahan rug are exquisite, with soft natural dyes and the drawing of the design has been executed perfectly. The condition is very good all over, with a finely cut wool pile and no damage or repairs the original fringes and selvedges are in tact too.

Isfahan is situated virtually in the centre of Iran, and was once the capital city. The rugs are woven in the city itself and the surrounding villages. Starting in the early 17th century, their name was renowned throughout Europe – this has continued to the present day. Although rug making was interrupted by the Afghan invasion, it quickly re-established itself as a major centre for the finest handmade carpets. This example show cases why Isfahan are famous for weaving the most detailed, beautiful fine rugs.
