Object description :

"Fine Silk Ghoum Rug - Iran Shah Period Circa 1960"
Period Of Shah - Iran 20th around 1960. The holy city of Qom (Ghoum) is located about 100 km from Tehran. Ghoum rugs are among the most impressive and prized examples of Persian craftsmanship across the world. In Qom, all rugs are made using the finest raw materials. Qom's silk is one of the most qualitative in the world. The wool, on the other hand known as kork wool, is of excellent quality and very shiny, since it is more oily and extracted from the neck of the lamb. The rugs are either made entirely of a natural silk pile and warp (sometimes with a double silk pile) or a kork wool pile, sometimes with very intricate silk details. The silk threads used are extremely fine, which allows weavers to use a weaving technique that will give the rugs high knotting density, great precision in details as well as intricate designs.
