("Great Lakes Collection") A consummate example of Mohtasham mastery, this highly collectible carpet reveals a sublime, gracious palette, softly energizing the rug's majestic design, and an extraordinarily fine weave. The resplendent, tour-de-force eight-petalled medallion and under-scale pendant extensions command the field. Exhibiting this illustrious style's stirring chiseled detail, gloriously lyrical blossoms are attached to curling arabesque vinery in a dazzling variety of types and scales, woven with admirable exactitude; eloquent spandrels echo shapes in the medallion. Completing this exquisite, 170-year-old carpet, a brilliantly conceived border pattern that adds a quiet sense of movement to the stately field features tumbling, gossamer tendrils, and numerous miniature flowers and cross-shaped stars silhouetted on a shimmering indigo base.
