Antique yazd 16262 Carpet No(Type N Reference): 16262 Origin (State, Province): South Persia Size: 197 x 127 cm from sh.sameyeh Oriental carpet catalogue page No.171 Age: Mid 19th century Category: South Persia Description of Design and History: Antique Yazd Rugs – The world of antique Oriental rugs is incredibly vast. Over the centuries, countries in the East from Turkey to China have each developed their own unique methods for weaving rugs and carpets, as well as their own distinctive styles. Indeed, rug making is such an important cultural and traditional practice in certain countries that the specific regions within those countries each developed their own styles. The best such example of this is certainly Persia, from where a great preponderance of the finest antique carpets emerge. Antique rugs from Persia are almost always referred to by the region where they were woven. “Yazd rugs” are one such example. Halfway between Isfahan and Kerman — both very important rug weaving centers — it is hardly surprising that Yazd became heir to the great tradition of classical Persian rug and carpet weaving. Yazd rugs represent some of the very finest Persian rugs, and are prized for their beauty and impeccable craftsmanship. 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 “quality of color”–its radiance and level of nuance within each color–is centrally important. Certain rare colors such as Tyrian purple, saffron yellow, cochineal rose and greens add to the carpet’s value
