Oriental Rugs. Some facts respecting the most beautiful and durable floor coverings known. [Information supplied by John H. Pray, Sons & Co., 658 Washington St., opp. Boylston St.] [Second Article.] When Homer wrote the epic Iliad and the Odyssey, the use of carpets, or as the Latins afterwards called them, tapetes, had become in a measure common among the higher classes. In that day they were usually white or plain in color, rarely of various colors. The now long lost purple dye of the Tyrians was even occasionally used as a coloring. Ptolemy Philadelphus, on the occasion of a remarkable banquet when even the couches were golden, spread 200 of these purple carpets of the finest wool. And with the pattern on both sides, one under each couch, and according to Callixenus, his biographer, hid that part of the floor still bare with richly embroidered rugs. The walls, too, were not improbably decked with still choicer specimens of the carpet weaver's art. The Romans made constant use of the tapetes, not only in the form of rugs and carpets, but also in that of tapestries. Their houses and temples, walls and floors, tables and couches were splendid with them, and their trading ships brought them from the East, just as ours to to-day. Long rotted are the tapetes that Greek and Roman civilization used; dust are the carpets that the Venetian doges raped from the long slumbering East, for the adornment of those marvellous palaces of theirs – palaces that the Adriatic's waves still caress; gone are the rugs that Moorish warriors brought with them when they stamped their oriental architecture upon the Spanish country; and yet in Persia, at the shrines of Koom and [?], covering tenderly the tombs of long dead monarchs, there are even at this day tattered fragments of wonderful workmenship, silken threads and knots that once formed carpet coverings to the marble death chambers of those mighty [?] kings who lived and ruled hundreds and hundreds of years ago. One might search all Persia and, of course, find no other specimens of this marvellous carpet weaving art, (art that may be as old as man), that can compare with these fragments, in point of age. Nor, for the sake of that art, does one need to do so, for the modern carpets of the Orient, made after the old designs and patterns and in the same way, never equal the old – why no one can positively say.
