(High-Decorative) This formalized village Persian carpet offers an impactful design with a sophisticated composition blending a robust drawing style with a subtly curvilinear pattern that appears to pay homage to Persian court rugs. Skillfully executed changes in the scale of its motifs is most evident in the grandeur of the medallion vis--vis the delicacy of its borders. Soothingly mature, mid-range colors were brewed with care before the advent of the modern commercial period when synthetic dyes began to degrade the authenticity of rugs on the market. This over century-old, visually stunning carpet has seen relatively little use, as evidenced by its mildly patinated heavier pile condition.
