3002 Antique Mashed Rug 8'9" x 11'9"
Beautiful gold Background Floral Antique Persian Mashed Carpet, Country Of Origin : Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1920 – This stunning Mashed has a beautiful golden background that adds a touch of elegance, warmth and a splash of happy color to any room’s interior design. The floral design of this elegant room size rug is reminiscent of the formal flower gardens that once graced the courtyards of palaces in empires past. The delicate flowers fall in graceful sprays, sweeping the ground and scattering a tapestry of petals to walk upon.
This highly artistic antique Persian rug uses refined floral and vine scroll patterns of red, ivory and blue against the brilliant gold background. This creates a juxtaposition that allows the individual floral motifs to shine and stand out in all their glory for the whole world to see.
This beautiful antique room size Persian Kerman carpet uses traditional floral design elements to create horizontal symmetry and only a feel of vertical symmetry as well. At first glance, most people feel that this floral rug is completely symmetrical, but after one spends some time examining it further, they realize that it is only an illusion.
Another interesting play on directionality is the fact that the rug is only somewhat directional. The vast majority of the flowers are growing upwards but not all.
The focus of the design is on sweeping curvy shapes that are accented by smaller motifs that are contained within the rug design itself. This gives it a sense of informality, yet a sense of structure at the same time. It also provides a splendid sense of artistic balance and only adds to its beautiful design.
The rug artist created balance between the complex formal borders and the main design field. The blueborders are created from formal design elements, but they are not overstated in such a way that they detract from the central design. This is a beautifully executed piece and would look stunning in any traditional formal home or office setting.
