(High-Decorative) Filled with joyous vibrant color and incredibly fluid contours, this antique Dorasht Northeast Persian rug offers an enthusiastic creative flight of fancy. Its virtually square shape is very rarely encountered and widely sought after. Innovative in all respects, its riveting palette is composed entirely of novel, energetic tones of watermelon red, glowing saffron and clear mid-tone blues, skillfully moderated by subtle accents of ivory and aquamarine. In a nod to the dexterity and refinement for which antique Dorasht rugs are noted, the design is at once effusive and perfectly harmonious. Its exuberant weaver channeled expression through the lens of balance and symmetry, from the majestic shield reserve to the grand-scale scrolling meander of its spacious border suite.
