Yazd

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

With a distinctive golden background this Yazd carpet from central Persia traces delicate vine-scroll and stylized plants using copious space and exquisite balance. In the thirteenth century, Yazd was described by Marco Polo as a center for luxury silk textile production and this was true well into modern times. In the nineteenth and early twentieth century, pile carpets from Yazd were mainly woven under the influence of models from neighboring Kirman. This piece, however, shows a sophisticated understanding of urban Persian weaving from further north, more particularly from the region of Feraghan. Of particular merit is the treatment and execution of floral elements in the border: the four corners are punctuated by elegant flowers with large petals, themselves the culmination of networks of vine-scroll drawn in a manner heightening the over-all neoclassical feel of the composition.
