Antique 1870s Persian Mishan Farahan Rug, 5x7

$18,500

About

This 1870-1880 Persian Mishan Malayer rug consists of a cotton warp, handspun wool weft and hand-knotted handspun wool pile. Its vivid reds, oranges, pinks, and blues were all created using organic vegetable dyes. The cream, gold and taupe tones were also created using organic vegetal dyes, and work together create an overall soft and harmonious design. Mishan Malayers, that is, Malayers created in the village of Mishan, are renowned for their exceptional quality and highly sophisticated weave. They are a rare find, and what is especially unique to this carpet is the undyed camel wool background surrounding its central medallion. It is an improvisational piece, created from the heart by the weaver. The four points of the central medallion represent the four elements: earth, fire, wind and water. It is truly a special piece. The size is 4'6" x 6'5", and it is in excellent antique condition.
