Persian Qum Pure Silk Carpet – Very Fine – Signed – Central Medallion. Light complexion in red.

This is a particularly fine Persian Qum weaving displaying a unique design, whereby the lobed central medallion is placed over horizontal columns of ribbon ‘canes’. This appears to be derived from the straight vertical canes that are seen in Qum weavings and known as the ‘Moharamat’ design. The ribbon effect as seen here creates a sense of movement to the composition and is a wonderful complement to the highly detailed floral motifs which are woven with great profusion and presented in an extensive  range of complementary jewel like colours. This is a fine work of  Qum weaving, and its no surprise that this original design is duly signed by the master weaver.
