Vintage Persian Meshad Botanic Handmade Wool Carpet

$ 50,000
  • Description
    An early 20th century Persian Meshad (Meshed) antique carpet, the abrashed caramel field with an allover design of racemes, palmettes and feathery leaves within a dark brown palmette border.

    With a good supply of soft wool and high quality craftsmen, Meshad has had a reputation as one of the most prolific, creative, and highly stylized sources of beautiful Persian carpets making them easily identified throughout the centuries. Most Mashhad oriental rugs have corner-medallion designs strewn with flowers. The medallion, quarter-foils, and the main field of the carpet are typically dark-red or black-blue. The medallion in Mashhad carpet is often circular with sixteen appendages or oval. The main field of the Persian carpet is frequently strewn with motifs adopted from filigree works of Kerman and Yazd. Considering the design, weave, and coloring of these rugs, they are very easily distinguished from carpets woven in Yazd or Kerman.
