MODERN PERSIAN QUM HAND KNOTTED SILK RUG, 2' 7'' x 4': The finest silk rugs in Iran are produced in Qum and this rug is a beautiful example of the outstanding quality of rugs that have been woven there. This rug has a very realistically drawn tree of life design, the trees springing from rocks and foliage that are executed in a masterful way. The many colors of silk used to create the trees, rocks, and flowers found in profusion all over the rug look like many more colors due to the expertise of the weaver. In fact this rug has a signature cartouche with the name Motevasseli found in the middle of the topmost border of the rug. This small piece of art would be a great addition to any sophisticated collectors home. Excellent condition.
