914. a stunning Qum Persian rug

Old Qum or Ghom Persian rug

914. Provenance: Qum or Ghom, central Persia

Size: 250 x 154 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condition: Low pile, with some variation in length, but otherwise fine for high age.

Notes: A really beautiful piece with fine weaving and inspired drawing. The highly artistic floral sprays that cover the main field and borders, are executed in subtle, harmonious colours. Qum carpets are world-renowned for their artistry and technical merits (despite carpets having only been woven here since the early 1900s). A gem.
