Antique Senneh Rug from Northwest Iran, late nineteenth centuryA stunning Herati pattern spreads in all its complexity across the field of this lavish antique Senneh. While this design is usually applied as a small-scale pattern of minute proportions, here it is blown up into monumental scale with a micro-fine embellishment of vines in the background. A classic turtle border retains the finer scale of this secondary field embellishment. But as impressive as the design may seem, it is actually the spectacular array of saturated colors that ultimately makes this rug, particularly the complementary effects of soft blues, reds, and rich saffron yellow.
