An exquisite, inventive, and harmonious palette of natural colors clearly demonstrates the mastery of dyeing techniques achieved by the best artisans of the Second Golden Age of Persian Weaving. A rare mint green blossom is showcased within a luminous watermelon medallion, complemented by an equally entrancing golden apricot in the corner pieces. The remarkable balance and clarity of this Persian floral design greatly enhance the depth and nuance of these seldom encountered hues, as does this area size antique rug’s superb condition at over 130 years of age.
