Persian Rugs: Guide to Isfahan Rugs and Carpets

 
Hagop Manoyan Antique RugsNazmiyal Antique Rugs

Isfahan rugs fit into my "Persian Rugs the O'Connell Guides" section as a group of related rugs of rugs centering around the city of Isfahan and in Isfahan province. These rug are predominantly woven by weavers who speak Persian and who are Shia Moslems.Workshops are the main impetus with even the lesser work copying the greater.

What is an Isfahan?
That rather depends what year it is. As I look over the group I see it in terms of:

There are of course the great Isfahans carpets of the sixteenth century.The other major group are the Isfahans of the 20th century. In The Persian Carpet Cecil Edwards indicated that he thought Isfahan date to only about 1919 as a major weaving center. Enough credible people have dated Isfahans to 1900 or earlier that  I must to assume that pre1920 is the product of a "minor weaving center". So for now I will hold with the breakdown I have now.
