About: What classical music looks like in the form of an antique rug. Whimsical vines and branches play in the spring winds, beautifully deep midnight blue lets the gold, beige, buttery creams, and warm reds and soft blues and teals dance under the moonlight. This rug is pure poetry with a sprinkle of class and a dash of sophistication. Beautiful center medallion anchors the piece, but only to accentuate every square inch of the rest of the rug - the perfect balance of scale. Then you have the border, that is every bit of sensational with the palmette and leaf design throughout - adding some sort of structure to the piece. Well balanced with the 4 corner spandrels layered so beautifully - this rug has it all and is, of course, one of the most timeless antique city rugs known to mankind.
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.
Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!
We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
