Antique Persian Semnan Carpet in Cream, Black, and Pink Wool

$6,325

About

Measuring 4’7” x 6’6”, this antique Persian Semnan carpet is hand-knotted and utilizes beautiful and subtle shades of cream, black, and pink. This piece was hand-knotted using a traditional Persian weave, which provides a plush pile and a durable foundation. To obtain the bright blue, gold, pink, brown, and green tones of wool, the Persian weavers utilized organic vegetable dyes. Still preferred today, these organic dyes are sought after for their bright hues and fade-resistant qualities. Like other antique Semnan carpets, the striking pattern incorporates a traditional Persian flower garden design with an artistic twist. The design features a small central medallion, surrounded by flourishing flowers, butterflies, and enough minute details to make you feel as if you were directly inside a kaleidoscope. The dramatic design is aided by the meticulous indigo or black detailing around each motif, providing vivid contrast from the cream background. Bouquets of orange, blue, gold, green, and pink flourish symmetrically throughout the garden design. Additionally, the kaleidoscope is aided by two large Herati motifs located inside the rectangular frames, and their cream, pink, and orange detailing contrast with the black background. We love the fluidly of the Herati motifs and how the harmonious design interconnects and overlaps upon itself. This carpet is captivating and would make an ideal bedroom, living room, or entryway carpet.
