Old Persian Tehran Carpet – Oversize

This Persian Tehran carpet is published in;

THE PERSIAN CARPET, ‘The Fabric of Life’, Essie Sakhai, Woodbridge, 2008.

pl. 116, p. 177.

This carpet has exactly the same repertoire
of motifs as the example shown in Plate 162
but utilises a more traditional palette. Indeed,
looking at a detail of the field, only the
brightness of these colours and one or two
individual shades – a pale but vivid pistachio
green, for instance, or a light purplish blue
indicate that this is anything other than a
late-16th to early-17th century Kashan carpet,
instead of a modern Tehran carpet.

Antique Persian Tehran carpet handwoven from wool in Iran. Items of this proportion are considered oversize with respect to a standard room.
