(High-Collectible) ("Best-of-the-Best Sold in 2017") Skillful, dramatic color juxtapositions animate this outstanding 19th century Senneh rug. Its traditional guli farang motifs are drawn with unusual balance and nuance. Set within a saturated indigo reserve, an expansive allover pattern incorporates the individually rendered rose bouquets of the Guli Farang (translated as ”Foreign Flower”) design, in which European floral motifs have been reinterpreted as part of an original Persian tribal aesthetic. Though the larger devices are distributed throughout the composition, there is a spontaneity introduced in their presentation, with continual variation in size, line and hue. Learn About This Rug Type
