A very fine antique Tehran carpet from northern Persia in exceptional good pile woven with high quality soft wool. The colours are fantastic and typical of Tehran carpets with vivid purples and aubergine as the main field colour. The detail in the animals with gold and soft blue dyes are lovely. Woven on a cotton foundation it is a fine carpet that would compliment many interiors. Rare to find pictorial Tehran carpets with silk high lights and in such astounding condition.
A rare near perfect condition antique Tehran carpet with beautiful colours and an elegant floral design highlighted by silk. This carpet has beautiful animals in the design and is a remarkable fine weave.  Woven by expert weavers the variety of pale blues and indigo deeper dyes are stunning.  The abrash in the green floral palmettes is a what makes these antique pieces have so much charm.  These carpets would have been woven in workshops by the best weavers using a 'cartoon' drawing to know exactly where each knot would go.  The precision is quite remarkable.  Woven by expert weavers the weave is very tight indeed, being a fine town carpet the pile is cut finely. The wool fine pile is in good condition throughout with only minimal lower areas of pile. The silk highlights are very clear on the animals and flowers to show the intricacy of the design. No damage or stains or rewoven areas. A beautiful elegant carpet from Tehran.

Tehran is the capital of Iran the country historically referred to as Persia, the greatest carpet producing country in the world. However, while traditional rugs have been woven in a variety of styles throughout Persia for centuries and centuries Tehran itself only became a center of rug production after the great revival of Persian weaving in the late nineteenth century.
