APPROX 30-50 YR OLD PERSIAN QUM FINELY KNOTTED SMALL FRAMED SILK RUG 18 1/2'' x 24'': This beautiful example of Persian weaving has a midnight blue field covered with a well placed arrangement of a variety of flowers around a central floral ''wheel''. The flowers colors are mostly pastel with a deep red in some flowers and also used to outline motifs. Instead of curving leaves circling around the flowers a branch of graduated size flowers is used. This same motif is found as part of the border design around palmettes and larger single flowers. There is a signature cartouche at both the top and bottom of this little jewel. Framed 38'' x 28''.
CONDITION: Not examined out of frame.
