Nazmiyal Auctions’ upcoming Antique, Vintage & Modern Rug sale features a variety of Persian carpets and other woven spreads. Among the top lots is an animal design Persian Tabriz rug that measures over 14 feet long. It dates back to the early 20th century during a revival of traditional weaving techniques. Around this time, craftspeople returned to the long history of carpet weaving in the Tabriz region, bringing back the elaborate motifs and patterns that first brought Persian rugs to the global stage. The available antique Tabriz rug arranges prancing animals and a garden border atop a jewel red background. A collection of Serapi carpets are also on offer. Closely related to examples made in the nearby Heriz area, Serapi rugs are particularly known for their high quality and open designs. Nazmiyal Auctions will present several of these carpets, including a large Serapi rug with elegant geometric designs and navy blue accents.
Elsewhere in the catalog, bidders will find several Scandinavian rugs from the workshop of Märta Måås-Fjetterström. Her work became emblematic of mid-century modernism and a new wave of rug design. One featured rug bears the initials of Barbro Nilsson, a veteran artist who took over the workshop when Måås-Fjetterström died. The rug’s pattern relies heavily on geometric shapes and pulsing shades of yellow and beige. Modern Moroccan rugs, Flemish tapestries, and other room-sized carpets round out the listings.
