Description This turn of the century antique Persian Meshad rug features an all-over design of floral abstractions and arabesques in shades of blue and terracotta against a field of beige. Serrated leaf patterns and palmettes, common features of Oriental rug weaving, add a traditional dimension to this antique carpet. The rug comes from Meshad, the administrative seat of the Khorassan province throughout the centuries, and home to many well-known Oriental rug workshops. The towns of Amoghli, Khamenei, Makhmalbaf, Saber and Zarbaf produced antique Persian rugs that feature both symmetrical and asymmetrical knots, as well as multiple borders with eclectic color palettes. Designs are based on classical models and feature color schemes ranging from traditional burgundies and midnight blues to the more contemporary tints of ice blue and beige. Meshad weavers frequently signed their work, adding interest and value to the unparalleled nature of these antique Oriental rugs.
