Persian Nain Extra-Large Carpet – Mansion Size – Fine Silk and Wool

This Persian Nain carpet is published in;

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

pl. 193,  pp. 246-247.

This magnificent and unusually large
carpet’s palette – predominantly pale chocolate,
dark blue, light blue, and cream, with small details
in red and darker shades of chocolate brown – is
completely characteristic of Nain weaving, as is the
design of three forms of cartouche, a long one and
two slight variations on the quatrefoil with delicate
floral ‘filler’ motifs between. Unsurprisingly, it is
signed, at both ends, by the greatest Nain ustad,
Habibian; it dates from the late-1940s.

Persian Nain extra-large carpet handwoven from fine silk and wool in Iran. Items of this size are considered mansion size with respect to the dimensions of a standard room.
