Fine Antique Tehran Persian Rug, Hand Knotted, Circa 1890
Carpets made in Tehran have curvilinear patterns. The majority are around fifty years old. It is very hard to find rugs and carpets made in Tehran in recent years, except ones produced by master weavers for museums or rich buyers. One of the most famous master weavers and rug designers in IRAN was Rassam Arabzadeh.
The quality of TEHRAN carpets varies. Older ones (pre-1945) are good. Newer ones produced by master weavers are excellent. This new series of rugs ends up in museums or is exported for a high price.
Warps is mostly cotton; wefts is either cotton or wool.
