One of the most Gonbad Designs with my clients...
This Qum Persian rug features a unique color combination with one of the most popular variations of the Gonbad design that my clients often ask about. The Gonbad design is known as the Jafari teardrop pattern and is typically found in only high end Persian rugs like the pure silk Qum rugs due to the challenging nature of the design. With about 650 kpsi, it is a very fine showpiece quality Qom perfectly suited for a formal part of a home and many of my clients like to hang these Qum rugs as wall decor.
The colors in this piece are strikingly beautiful and as you look at the pictures, you can see the difference between the light and dark side. From one side, the blue color is the dominant color and from the other side, the blues fade away and the gold color jumps out. My biggest challenge is finding more pieces like this Qum rug and as with virtually all of our Qum rugs, this piece is also signed and in this case it is the weavers from the workshop Mir-Mahdi that had woven this particular rug.
