Woven in patterns recalling gardens or bouquets of brightly coloured flowers, Persian carpets brought warmth and beauty to a household. The designs are stylized in appearance, showing series of floral forms in crowded but pleasing arrangements. Some carpets have a predominant central medallion. There is a richness of colour, often with a wide range of tonality and hues, the most distinctive tones being blues, reds, browns, and greens and a high knot density. The fields of this old Persian piece is lavishly covered with intricate designs of buds and blossoms supported by vines and tendril. Surrounding the fields are several borders containing undulating vines with pendant flowers coordinated in design and colour with the main pattern.
