Dating from the beginning of the 20th Century, this beautiful, brightly-coloured silk rug demonstrates the superior quality of Persian carpet-weaving.

The carpet is of rectangular form, with a light orange-coloured field enclosed within two dark red borders. Every inch of the carpet is covered with woven decoration, consisting of stylised flowers and palmettes, more commonly known as Shah Abbasi. While this ornament is carefully composed, it is not rigidly contained within medallions, spandrels and other geometric frames. Instead, the flower designs appear to have appeared and grown organically. The rug is fringed on two ends.

Since silk is finer than other fabrics, such as cotton or wool, it allows for greater detail in the design, as demonstrated by this beautiful, intricately-patterned carpet.
