The finest 19th century rugs from the Qashqai, Arab Khamseh and Afshar tribes of Southern Persia are woven jewels of great interest to serious connoisseurs. This quite early example of masterful Afshar rug weaving will be absolutely breathtaking to those with a seasoned eye. It is complex yet entirely cohesive. Each blossom of its lushly ornamented field is individually articulated, and its syncopation between time-matured goldenrod, persimmon, ultramarine, and oxblood create an entrancing dynamism. This antique carpet's five borders, unique to Afshar pattern language, further reflect a master weaver's ability to perfectly balance many diverse elements. (Featured in catalog Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 21.)
