Extremely Fine Rare Persian Nain CarpetRug #5271
Extremely fine Persian Nain carpet, rare large size.
The city of Nain is a relatively recently established centre for the weaving of decorative furnishing carpets, with designs predominantly based on 17th Century Classical Persian designs. Carpet weaving became established in Nain in the 1930’s and rapidly became a significant centre for the making of exceptional decorative carpets. Prior to the 1930’s, Nain was a well know centre for the production of fine silk and as such, silk features as a major material used in the weaving of Persian Nain carpets. Due to the close proximity to the Persian city of Esfahan, an historically important centre for the weaving of technically fine and highly decorative rugs with a tradition dating back to the 16th Century, it would be inevitable that much of Persian Nain carpet pattern repertoire would be hugely influenced by the outstanding established Persian Esfahan weaving skills, and traditional iconography. The technical fineness of much of Nain workmanship is comparable to the finest technical finesse as seen in any other significant centre of Persian urban carpet weaving. A good deal of emphasis is placed upon the colour palette which is distinctive to Persian Nain carpets. Shades of blue and beige with green and red are often present, ivory, and ivory silk is frequently used as a ‘highlighting’ material to enhance the visual appearance of Persian Nain carpets. Central medallion formats are a major part of their design repertoire, though all over repeat patterns are also prevalent.
