Description:

Size: 10 Feet 6 inches X 7 Feet

Material: Mid-20th C. High Quality Fine Authentic Vintage Royal Persian Tehran Rug. Made of all natural, vegetable dye, hand woven, hand spun, and softest baby lamb's wool pile on cotton foundation.

Country of Origin: Iran

Auction Estimate: $2,500.00 - $2,800.00

Note:  This is a royal Tehran weave. Tehran, being the capital and the commercial center of Iran, has never been a center for rug production. However, the few that are woven are of extreme high quality and artistic workmanship, making them among the most desirable and sought after Persian rugs. This royal Tehran has a glowing and lively appearance due to its high quality baby lamb’s wool pile. A true museum-quality piece. This lovely piece is masterfully hand woven, knot by knot, and has about 100 knots per square inch. It takes over three years for a master weaver to create this beauty. Creases are due to fold and are not a defect.
