(High-Collectible) ("Best-of-its-Type Sold in 2019”) Each Persian weaving region had its own interpretation of the "Vase Rug" design that presents a phantasmagorical tree springing from a large urn at the bottom of the field. In the 19th century, the town of Ferahan in the Sarouk district developed a particularly dazzling overscale patterning expressed in the region's profound palette of saturated colors. This piece is a profoundly inspired example of the palpable sense of fecundity that was achieved in the very best pieces. Here, a potent red-barked tree ascends from an ornately detailed vase, its branches supporting a vast hierarchy of differing flowerheads. The architectural feature of an intense cerulean blue archway supported on exceedingly slender pillars lends a note of realism to this art rug’s beatific vision. Learn About This Rug Type
