VERAMIN, North Central Persian
3' 4" x 14' 9"
102cm x 450cm
Late 19th Century
Woven with the exceptional finesse and refinement for which Veramin weavings are renowned, this Persian town runner is reminiscent of an intricate mosaic of painstakingly placed tessera, yielding highly kinetic rows of animated boteh seeds burgeoning with vital flora. Admired for its rare design coupling of classical Persian detailing and tribal elements, such as the elemental diagonal striped border in this piece, Veramin weaving reveals how these two traditions can intriguingly coexist. Crystalline hues of sapphire blue, amber, pomegranate, and precious forest green enliven the rug's glowing palette, supporting this nuanced aesthetic. We very seldom see 19th-century Veramin rugs or runners, and are elated about this first-rate example with its level of consummate, ornate artistry with supremely velvety, heavy pile.
