Senneh - Carpet - 241 cm - 161 cm

Description
Senneh - Carpet - 241 cm - 161 cm
Wool on cotton - Iran - 1900-1949

In addition to its attractive appearance, this Senneh city carpet has certain characteristics which are of special interest for the collector. The most important is the realisation that all dyes seem to be natural, that is, derived from plants. It is often assumed that synthetic dyes were used for the carpets of this period (1940 - 1950). With this example, intensely gleaming plant dyes with their inimitable luminosity refute this assumption. Here the knotter displays his ability with the finest knotting of cork wool on cotton.
