8’ 3” x 12’ 9” A handwoven Persian Nain room-size rug from the 3rd quarter of the 1900s. This Nain rug has a beautiful floral design with a central medallion set in a rich navy blue field color with a cream color border. The central medallion is in cream color with the design of vases that contain “Kufic text” The design colors in the field include navy blue, French blue, baby blue, brown, and cream colors. The corner spandrels are in beige color with designs in French blue and baby blue colors with designs of deers and characters similar to “Kufic text”. The rug has a wool pile with a cotton foundation and silk highlights. The vibrancy and the extended use of the silk throughout the rug are incredible. It definitely gives that three-dimensionality to the design. Truly a gem from the fine workshop weavers in Nain.
