(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This delightful antique Persian tribal rug presents charming patterning and a beautiful, naturally dyed, age-softened palette. The Afshar aesthetic is distinctively sweet, its drawing naïve but with painstaking details, its colors uplifting. Here the dark blue and deep red combination traditional to Persian carpets is replaced by a glowing copper accented by a walnut shade that broadens the spread of the color palette. Unique to this area’s pattern vocabulary, a boteh-shaped motif appears 12 times within the field, each iteration holding a flower in full bloom, a desert symbol for the potential of the seed, for the magic of life. Apricot and rich gold along with an ivory base in both the corners and border amplify this little gem’s cheerfulness. Learn About This Rug Type
