Exquisite and very rare pair of antique Tehran rugs woven around 1900 - 1910. The soft white background allows all the silk highlights to stand out, the design is complicated and beautifully executed. They have repeated the main design in the centre of the rug running down the border. Master weavers would have woven this pair as they are almost identical in colour and size.

Tehran carpets and rugs can match the quality and workmanship of any Tabriz or Isfahan piece. Relatively new to producing decorative carpets and rugs compared to neighbouring cities such as Tabriz. Tehrans rugs production became more notable after the great revival persian weaving around the late nineteenth century. Tehran rugs are quite distinctive from other town carpets as there palette of dyes generally consisted of burgundy and purple dyes along with varying indigo dyes. Many would be pictorial pieces often with elaborate hunting designs.

This pair of rare Tehran rugs are very decorative using intricate bird motifs with vases of flowers. Many of the birds are woven in silk. An extremely elegant pair of rugs in wonderful condition with no restoration of any kind.
