(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery")With great originality and a radiant, unique color palette, this quite early Persian Afshar tribal rug in an exceedingly seldom-encountered mat-size possesses great artistic magnitude. Most remarkable is its highly evocative, luminous cerulean blue ground, subtly transitioning to cobalt blue through expert use of abrash. Rows of slightly varying boteh motifs provide a memorable counterpoint with their blinking pomegranate red and ivory outlines and vivid golden-orange centers. This some 180-year-old art rug’s profusion of rare, evocative color continues in its iridescent coral border, where the eye-catching shades of azure, ivory, saffron and deepest midnight indigo reveal an uncommon sensitivity and variation of tone. Its significant age and surprisingly robust condition cement its position as a premier-level collectible art rug. Learn About This Rug Type
