About: An unbelievably gorgeous square antique rug. This piece captures it all; rarity in size and color, along with the large artistic "fish"/ Herati design, and a sensational weave. Nice floppy handle, extra fine knots, and drool-worthy color palette. Golden-saffron field, with pops of ice blue, deep royal and french blue, an unusual taupe-sand, espresso, camel, and the most beautiful plum hues you've ever seen. The design inside is asymmetrical with huge fish swimming around the moonlight right under the surface of the water (this ancient design's story goes way back to old folklore). Extra tight border adds nice visual formality and frames the artistic field of the rug beautifully. Whoever wove this was a master in balance, imagination, and a true lover of art - not to mention unbelievably talented as a weaver. This is a piece you will NEVER find again. One of one, indeed.

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.
