LOT 11245 Tabriz silk prayer rug

FIRST FLOOR GALLERY

 

LOT 11245 tabriz silk prayer rug. 

NORTHWEST PERSIA, CIRCA LATE 19TH CENTURY.  5 ft. 6 in. x 4 ft.

Estimate: $3,000-5,000

SOLD: $2,500 + 25% Buyers Premium.  4 bids

Freeman's Comments:  Fine overall condition with ends/sides intact and generally full pile throughout, apart from some generally minor wear in parts of mihrab. Rug is generally pliable, not dry or brittle.

Rug Rag Comments:  Overall, a very beautiful deep bronze colored silk Tabriz prayer rug in good to very good condition.  We were unable to view the carpet in its entirety, as it was hung higher up on the wall, however we able to note two things: The carpet has an unusual canvas backing for unknown purposes.  Pile did not appear to be dry to the touch, however it is unknown what affect this canvas backing has had on the rug.  This carpet showed nominal wear, slightly uneven in the center of the rug.  A very pretty example with rich yet subtle colors.

 

Note below both the ivory colored fabric backing sewn onto the reverse side, and also the re-fringe work applied at both ends.  We have never seen these carpets with particularly long fringe, and believe they may never have been produced with such.
