Description

An absolutely beautiful Persian Isfahan carpet with a glorious repeating palmette design.  This is an early piece,  dating from around 1880 and is in remarkable condition with complete ends and selvedges.

Isfahan is situated virtually in the centre of Persia, and was once the capital city. The rugs are woven both in the city itself and the surrounding villages. Starting in the early 17th century, their name was renowned throughout Europe – this has continued to the present day.
