Kazvin

Early 20th Century
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Kazvin, Ghazvin, or Qazvin, was the capital of the Safavid Persian empire from 1548 until 1598 when the imperial seat was moved from this northern Persian city south to Isfahan in order to better defend against Ottoman incursions. Qazvin has a rich weaving heritage and It is increasingly hypothesized that the celebrated 'Salting Group' carpets, preserved most notably in the Topkapi Palace Museum in Istanbul, were woven in Qazvin during the period when it was the Persian capital. This elegant Qazvin carpet draws a classic central medallion format with corner-pieces. Rendered in a European inspired style, clusters of lush flowers form colorful bouquets against a deep blue ground. Similarly rich floral imagery is drawn in the light khaki borders.
