Tree of Life Mashad Rug - 4'8 x 6'9

Regular price $1,235.00 Sale

This Mashad rug was woven in East Iran during the first quarter of the 20th century. 

The tree of life composition of this stunning rug is dense and elaborate featuring  mirroring trees with flowers sprouting from their curvilinear branches. Between the trees is a large vase abundantly filled with sprouting flowers. A strip of blue at the bottom of the design represents water, the giver of life. The blue corners at the top of the rug signify the sky, with a soft abrash throughout. The ground color of the field is a soft golden tone and contrasts beautifully with the deep red found prevalently throughout the rug and both tones provide a wonderful canvas for the lovely pops of teal, green, orange and pink.

In excellent condition, with no signs of wear. Pile is low and densely woven.
