Lot Essay

The knot count is 10V x 10H per cm. sq.

The inscription within the three cartouches cannot be clearly deciphered.

The large silk carpets produced in Heriz towards the end of the 19th century are some of the most spectacular and luxurious of all Qajar weavings. Woven as special commissions, they would have been seen as one of the most explicit ways of displaying wealth and status. The border design of this carpet is identical to that of lot 43 in the present sale and it is likely that both carpets were woven in the same workshop.
