Nazmiyal Auctions to Present French Art Deco Carpets, Persian Rugs in November SaleNov 13, 2022 11:00 EST
Around the turn of the 20th century, industrialization rapidly accelerated in Europe. Factories made mass production a reality, and individualism in the realm of arts and crafts became socially acceptable. This combination of factors allowed the development of extravagant French Art Deco carpets and rugs that pushed the boundaries of design. A large French rug from this period will soon come to the market with Nazmiyal Auctions. Measuring nearly 17 feet by 15 feet, this green carpet dates back to 1920s France. It features radiating wreaths of foliage and draped leaves. A sunburst shape dominates the center of the rug. Also notable is an antique Spanish carpet that uses a bold mix of mustard yellow, lime green, and rust orange colors.
Antique Persian rugs and carpets in the sale include a Persian Garous rug made in the Bidjar region around 1900. Bidjar is located approximately 150 miles south of Tabriz, and its weavers make carpets known for their strength and durability. The available Bidjar carpet features dark shades of red against a black background, as well as tiny jewel-colored flowers. Rounding out the catalog is an antique cloud oval-shaped Chinese dragon rug, a Märta Måås-Fjetterström Swedish kilim rug signed by Barbro Nilsson, and an antique Turkish Oushak rug from circa 1900.
