This is a late 19th Century hand woven Mashhad rug, from NE Persia. It is large and in charge, with a naturally distressed style that has aged organically through time. We sure have a ton of pics to show off its detail, so please dive in and check out all of this grand beauty.
This large room size Persian has a grand medallion in the center of the rug and owns a sophisticated design with some classical floral art. The midnight blue borders and curvilinear hand work and woven design is spectacular. The wool on this rug is of great weight and amazing quality...and still has a lot of life to go.
Mashhad is a major producer of Persian rugs for hundreds of years and known to have some of the finest wool in their rugs. They possess a somewhat heavy handle to them and particular weave that makes them stand out.
Hand knotted with vegetable dyed wool, circa 1880.
