("Best-of-the-Best Sold in 2018") At the great age of nearly two centuries, this area-size Qashqai Kashkuli exemplifies the completely out-of-the-box creativity that exceeds the artistic boundaries of this seldom-encountered sub-tribe. The spaciousness and overscale drawing seen here invests this rug with a definitively early origin. Its liquid, morphing blossom shapes and equally elastic and prescient corner piece treatment captures an much purer, indigenous aesthetic than later Kashkuli rugs. Its brilliantly inspired color combinations masterfully leverage prized mid-tone blue hues alongside singular ochre red and rare forest greens for the most evocative possible impact.
