Step into a world of timeless elegance with this enchanting antique 1920s Persian Lilihan rug. Known for its delightful and charming use of pink, coral, and rose tones, Lilihan rugs have captivated admirers throughout the ages. Behold the intricate beauty of this gorgeous rug, adorned with curvilinear floral motifs and exceptional attention to detail. Crafted by the skilled hands of masters in the art of weaving, this lovely rug boasts a sturdy handle that showcases its remarkable craftsmanship.
Unlike the stiff Sarouk Persians that are similar in design, this Lilihan rug features a single weft construction, giving it a delightful floppy nature. Revel in the spaciousness of its design, a wonderful display of ornate artistic expression. This particular piece, measuring nearly 5x7, stands as a testament to the allure of rarer sizes in antique Persian rugs.
Take a closer look at the abstract botanical motifs gracefully adorning the border band. Each stroke of the weaver's hand tells a story, weaving together a tapestry of beauty and sophistication. With a low wool pile that bears the marks of time through scattered wear, this rug possesses a unique character that only age can bestow.
The original dyes of this rug have been softened through a compound wash, resulting in a lightened hue that is highly sought after by designers and enthusiasts alike. The result is a truly alluring and decorative piece, radiating with a subtle and muted color palette, yet boasting a soulful charm that transcends time. This beauty promises to stand the test of time, becoming a cherished centerpiece in any space fortunate enough to call it home.
