Antique Rugs

What is an antique rug?


Originally, way back in the 18th century, it denoted Classical Antiquity; ancient Greek and Roman cultural history. In the 19th century, it expanded to encompass anything pretty old, anything not in current use, something historical. The notion of an antique being at least one hundred years old seems to have been formalized around 1900. Antiques were objects made before the Industrial Revolution, by hand and not by machine. But time moves on.

Today, something 100 years of age is twentieth century and the 1920's are edging into the antique category. It is hard to wrap one's mind around Art Deco as antique when that style was once the epitome of Modern. But everything old was once new. Old is not necessarily better, just old, and quality can happen any time. Art does not take time outs. "Lost" periods, styles, cultures and media are constantly rediscovered. This keeps art historians and dealers employed.

An antique rug should be 100 years old by definition. However, a mass-produced rug from 1900, like anything mass-produced with attention given to commerciality and none to culture and craftsmanship, will never be antique no matter how old it gets. There is nothing artistic, no indication of craft attention or ingenuity, nothing speaking of the culture of origin. It is just an old rug that will serve its purpose as a floor covering; there is no soul and there is no tale. But Amoghli Mashads, which are less than 100 years of age, are already considered antique rugs because of its totally authentic design, genuine Persian materials and artistic quality.

There are other rugs that qualify as antiques although they aren't chronologically there yet. These pieces have the intrinsic integrity to age well and carry on the estimable oriental carpet art. Are they antiques-in-waiting or can we consider them as antiques already? [...]
