Kebabian’s Oriental Rugs, downtown New Haven since 1882, is thrilled to donate an exquisite Antique Persian Lilahan which will be available for purchase during the LIVE AUCTION.
This sophisticated Antique Lilahan ca. 1925 measuring 5’2″ x 6’6″ was hand-knotted in the village of Lilahan in western Persia by Armenians. This exceptional piece is valued at $3,500. The vibrant palette includes red, navy, cornflower blue, chestnut, rose and burnished gold. The artist’s design showcases a stunning center medallion which represents “window to heaven” surrounded by a red field overflowing with a variety of exquisite, thoughtfully placed floral designs. The main border beautifully frames the piece with stylized floral elements including palmettes.
