By | November 1, 2010

Example from our inventory of large oriental area rugs gallery:

Measuring 19′x43′6″, ca. 1900 India.

19' x 43'6" Antique Palace Carpet. Wine red Indian Carpet ca. 1900

Measuring 19′ x 43′6″, ca. 1900 India.

The largest rug in our collection, also believed to be one of the largest, if not the largest, antique rug/carpet in the United States.  A masterful feat to have crafted a rug of such quality and beauty over 100 years ago.  Carpets of this length and width, even today, are extraordinarily rare and hard to come by.  Measuring approximately 826.5 square feet, averaging approximately 225 knots per square inch, an approximated 26,000,000 +/- hand tied knots comprise the pile to this tremendous rug.

Palace Carpet Density

Deep, rich wine red field with golden accents throughout, the pile exhibiting a magnificent patina. Colossal size medallion with large lanterns on a grand open field; border consisting of large palmettes finished in a highly coveted, laleh abbasi reciprocating border. Ends and sides completely original and intact. A highly unusual example in condition, age, size, type and quality.

The rug is in near-perfect unused condition, with no loss to ends or sides.  Two very small repairs may be found, measuring less in size than 2 square feet total.  Perhaps attributable to transportation of this massive Palace carpet.
