Qajar Tehran


Antique Tehran carpets were woven in limited quantities from the third quarter of the 19th century to the late 1920s. In this very short period of time, high quality woven artworks were produced for the upper class and for the court. This breathtaking Tehran carpet was finely knotted with kurk lamb’s wool in the last quarter of the 19th century (circa 1880). The very unusual size leads us to think that it was woven on a specific commission. In the ivory field of this terrific specimen, the breathtaking green medallion is surrouned by eslimi spirals and colorful blossoms and flowers. Two green crowns were are placed at the top and at the bottom of the medallion while gorgeous sky blue spandrels pop out capture our attention. The field design is complex yet perfectly drawn by an experienced and skilled weaver. The blue border has been enriched with palmettes linked by spirals. The piece is in excellent condition.
