Isfahan 9738 circa 1890
Country of origin: Persia
Isfahan: A former capital and one of the most famous cities in the production of rugs. Isfahan is located in the west and was the capital city during the golden age of rug production in the 16th and 17th centuries while the Safavid dynasty was in power. After a decline in culture and prosperity from the early 18th century, Isfahan began regaining its status in the 1920's when fine rugs based on classical themes, began being woven once again. Many Isfahan carpets from the post-war period are very finely woven with knot densities up to 750 per square inch, and frequently the use of silk is added. Popular designs include intricate floral medallions or animal pictorial rugs. 19th century. Little worn.
