A rare colour antique Hamadan carpet with a wonderful fine weave and using an all over classical 'Herati' design.  This all over design is repeating in the main field which consists of a flower centred in a diamond with curving lanceolate leaves located outside the diamond and parallel to each side. There are many versions of this design in different shapes and varying sizes. This design has been stylised through the centuries and is supposed to represent two fish swimming around a water-lily, the design in 19th century carpets depicts two leaves around a flower.
The colours are sublime with the overall composition and palette having excellent balance which makes this an extremely attractive carpet.  The soft neutral tone background allows the lovely pale blues, pinks and greens in the spaced out lattice design to really enhance the carpet.  The blue border colour is fantastic and is a wonderful contrasting colour too.  Woven around 1900-1910 it is in remarkable original condition, with a good high wool pile throughout.  The weavers that produced this carpet were very accomplished and used the best dyes which have faded beautifully.  A rare narrower size carpet at just under 3 metres wide, more often antique carpets of this length of 5.70 metres long where much wider.
