(“FALL 2018 NEW ARRIVAL EVENT”)
From an increasingly hard to acquire style, this virtuoso 160-year old Caucasian Shirvan rug shimmers with patina, deeply illuminating its richly colored field and captivating dragon border. The articulation of the classic Shirvan hexagonal design with its distinctively textured outlines is exquisite, their complexity accentuated by the powerful simplicity of the crimson Gupta finials. Prized totemic animal forms are creatively drawn, notably tiny birds with proud quail-like crests and entirely dissimilar four-legged creatures sporting fanciful coloration. The beautiful and majestic dragon (or “interlock”) border is notable both for its exceptional clarity and its luminous gold base that is amplified by inventive syncopated neutral-toned sections.
