(High-Collectible) (“The Potomac Collection Spring 2019")Among the seldom-encountered, prized, 19th century Tehran rugs, this "Garden of Paradise" is extraordinary, a pictorial canvas that invites the viewer to take a walk through the country. At the bottom rests a pond with ducks, fish and even a pair of swans, leading to a meadow with sheep and deer. Beyond the meadow, houses sit on the edge of the woods, home to an incredible assortment of birds. Stately elk and countless bunnies populate the border arboreal border. An elaborately obscured central axis grounded at the bottom of the field by a vase exerts a brilliantly commanding influence on the harmony and symmetry of the scene. Learn About This Rug Type
