Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) This elegant 19th century carpet radiates the deep artistic inspiration so revered by seasoned antique rug connoisseurs. The stunning reserve of subdued cranberry is ensconced by an inventive surround of impressively graphic columns, seamlessly integrated into a garden of swirling vinery and blossoming boughs. Elongated proportions enhance the linear, frame-like quality of the architectural devices, engaging the viewer and creating unparalleled dimensionality. With intriguing restraint, this oriental carpet’s stunning pattern is quietly elaborated through its intentionally limited palette, depending on the interplay of pale umber and aged berry shades to express its exquisite ambiance. It is inscribed by the noted “Khasati Brothers” workshop. Learn About This Rug Type
