This beautiful rug is a 10’ x 12’7” Persian Mashad. This 30 year old Mashad rug is hand made with a full pile, made from 100% wool and is in perfect condition.
The city of Mashad is located to the far north-east of Persia. Carpet exportation from Mashad pre-dates 1555 with some rare pieces finding their way to various museums around the world. Based on normally a cotton foundation, the wool pile used in Mashad rugs is amongst the best in Persia. The wool used is soft and the pile is tight and thin. Dark red, blue and khaki are the typical colors used in the carpets making up a curvilinear pattern with a single central medallion, the corners are generally illustrate floral designs, and floral motifs occupy the background. Many of the best carpets in the world are made in Persia, and many of the best carpets in Persia are made in Mashad giving an idea of how important Mashad is as a carpet-weaving center. Most of the Mashad carpets are fairly large in size although it is possible to find designs of any size. Knot counts normally range anywhere between 120-475 KPSI, the higher the knot count, normally the higher the quality.
