(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 2, p. 16)Signed by the acclaimed workshop, "Dilmaghani", this quietly splendiferous 19th century room size carpet astonishes us with its lucid, refined graphic drawing. The design is entirely one-in-the-world, combining niched cypress trees, an elaborate vase and plant, and a likeness of a rose window in Chartres cathedral in France. The intricacy of the floral detail work evident in this carpet is unremitting, seamlessly interconnecting even the most distant floral tendril with every other motif. Such a showpiece in a large entry or other lightly furnished space can make a spectacular art statement. Learn About This Rug Type
