Hezar Djerib, north central Persia, ca. 1920,14ft. 0in. x 6ft. Lot 207, Austrian Auction Company, 19th November, estimate: €4.500 – 6.000. The publication of Undiscovered Minimalism by Werner Weber in 2011 revealed the pure minimal aesthetic of the covers woven in the Mazandaran region of Iran, well known for tea and silk production. This large cover would have been used to cover a variety of spaces including more expensive pile rugs. The rhythms of colour are like manna from heaven to many ruggies, and this example ranges through a colour spectrum rarely used in pile rugs. In our minds this is a lot of colour and cover for the money.
