Magnificent Persian Qum Silk Carpet – SignedRug #2673
Magnificent Persian Qum silk carpet, signed, exceptionally fine, medallion design, architectural
This finely woven Qum silk rug displays an invigorating architectural design, dating to the mid-20th Century. This remarkably fine Qum silk rug exhibits true characteristics of a Qum revivalist approach to adventurist rug design made with the best possible quality materials. The design displays an architectural pattern based on the elaborate interior decoration of a tin glazed ceramic tiled domed ceiling or interior arch.
This Persian silk Qum rug is an exceptional example of the genre. The definition of the pattern details are beautifully and intricately drawn, artistically and cleverly arranged with the bright ivory central circular medallion woven with intricate details surrounded by offset circles of interlocking pale blue pendants radiating from small to large, to create a large continuous medallion, each pendant also enclosing extremely detailed scrolling floral tendrils. These pale blue pendants are superbly placed over a deeper blue background. Such a contrast serves to maximise the visual impact of the pattern details. The offset orientation of the pendants also gives a great sense of movement and fluidity to the composition. The colours are wonderfully complementary with tones of blue, ivory, and saffron supported by accompanying accent tones which enhance the visual beauty of the composition. The arcaded border acts as a wonderful frame to the main field dome, with the details presented in similar complementary colours, enhanced using saffron tones between each arch.
This Persian Qum silk rug, is an exceptional example of Qum woven artistry at its best, a superlative technically fine and decorative example, which displays a style of design inspired by architectural features. There is no doubting that this Persian Qum silk rug was made by extremely talented, experienced weavers, and is duly signed by the Master Weaver.
