4316 36 Antique Vase Mashad Rug 11'6" x 17'8"
Beautiful and Finely Woven Large Antique Persian Mashad Rug 4316, Country of Origin: Antique Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Early 20th Century (around 1910) – A majestic design of spiraling vines and palmettes sprawls grandly across the deep blue field of this sumptuous antique Mashad rug from Persia. The main spiraling vines, jewel-like in appearance, in this finely woven antique rug, emanate in vertical columns from a vase at the base of the composition. A much more finely scaled and proportioned vine scroll border frames the field, nicely balancing to its richness and monumentality.
The delicate floral design of this antique Persian Mashad rug brings together the elements of earth and sky in exquisitely executed fine detail. This soft and zen like antique Persian rug was produced around the year 1910 and has held up beautifully to the test of time. The browns and blues are subdued and carry the sense of earthiness throughout the design of this softly colored antique rug.
The colors chosen for the antique Mashad rug blend to create a sense of harmony and balance, relying on subtle shading, rather than high-contrast elements. This sense of balance is also seen in other aspects of design. For instance, the antique Persian Mashad carpets features a wide, complex series of borders that take up a large space when compared to the field of the large size rug. This emphasizes the importance of the borders and the central field design equally.
