(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 1, p.28) We assist clients in choosing rugs that inspire them intellectually and emotionally as well as stunningly complement their décors. In this singular antique piece, the intentionally asymmetric placement of the overscale motifs and subtly gradated colors create a mesmerizing effect. Cruciform and columnar imagery imparts an almost architectural atmosphere to the expansive field design, made even more striking by the saturation of the crimson red ground. A great diversity of blossoms are represented, each drawn with the slight, personal variations that reveal the spontaneity of its weavers. The wide ivory border of archetypal split palmette motifs is the ideal counterpoint to this captivating intensity, creating an overall composition of impressive harmony. Learn About This Rug Type
