About: TRULY ONE OF ONE... If you are into rugs, art, history, and/or culture - we will never get our hands on the 400-600-year-old Dynasty Animal and Court pieces that were once woven for the Shahs, Rulers, and Leaders of those ancient times, those are with millionaire and billionaire art collectors and/or museums, but it can be argued that the later versions of them and heavily influenced pieces from this era of rug weaving are some of the most sought after. This size, color palette, and attention to detail of the Hunting Scenes, Feeding Scenes, Paradise Scenes, and of course the sobering portraits of the world's very Creatures that roam this planet alongside us are among some of the most unusual elements - but of course, nothing comes close to the unique and artisanal weavings and masterful skill of the representation of animals that replace the flower petals, the stems, the branches, leaves, and other anatomy of the flora and Earth's creation. I will write more about this piece soon...
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.
