Silk Heriz ( Seneh ) 100 X 72 Cm

Lot 4368M Details

Description
Origin : Northwest PersiaSize: 100 X 72 cm (Approximately 39.4 X 28.3 inch)Age: 3rd quarter of 19th centuryKnots: 9 x 9 = 81 knots per sq cmCondition: Excellent, full pailDescription of Design and History:Silk is a magical fiber that is unbelievably thin and astoundingly strong. Even when silk highlights are used to add definition to ornate designs, the complexion of a carpet or textile can change completely. The hand of silk rugs and textiles is rich and sumptuous. These traits are matched by the luminosity of colors when light is reflected by the fiber ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚„ƒ‚‚¢s prismatic structure. Silk is lithe yet exceptionally durable. As a commodity, it built the world ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚„ƒ‚‚¢s most famous trade route and created immortal legends. Today, silk is still the ultimate luxury fiber. The intrinsic value and beauty of silk is destined to outshine all other natural and synthetic fibers known to man.All natural dyes are paramount for the carpet to have more than just decorative value. Beyond that, various dyers had varying levels of skill and invested different lengths of time in dyeing the yarns. The ƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚‚…ƒ‚‚“quality of color ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚€ƒ‚‚œits radiance and level of nuance within each color ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚€ƒ‚‚œis centrally important. Certain rare colors such as Tyrian purple, saffron yellow, cochineal rose and greens add to the carpet ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚„ƒ‚‚¢s value
