("New Arrivals Gallery")This unusually refined, over 150-year-old Persian Khamseh is a strongly collectible rug that demonstrates exquisite craftsmanship and great clarity of design. With its magically asymmetrical diamond-shaped medallion serving as a centerpiece, it showcases an expansive palette of deeply time-softened naturally dyed colors, punctuated by rich saffron yellows and radiant powder blues. Its field's highly original delineation of the repeating "Cane" (vertical stripe) design containing zig-zag lines signifying running water. Its four spandrels (four corner pieces) burst forth with finely detailed blossoming plants, the produce of the life-giving quality of the water within.
