790. a disarming old Qum Persian rug

Old Qum or Ghom Persian carpet

790. Provenance: Qum (Ghom, Qom, Ghum), central Iran/Persia

Age: Circa 1950

Size: 370 x 280cm

Condition: Very good

Notes: Although Qum, which lies around 100km south of Tehran, is relatively new to the weaving of Persian carpets, it has established an enviable reputation for quality. This piece is reminiscent of many Tabriz, with beautiful shades of indigo, ivory, and beige. A lovely piece that is exceptionally easy to furnish with.
