(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 1, p.2) Exceptional balance and a diffuse, ethereal patina of substantial age are among the strong suits of this flawlessly executed 19th century Persian carpet from the acclaimed master designer, Hadji Jallili (Haji Jalili). The time-softened terra cotta field of this vegetally dyed rug, reminiscent of early Etruscan sculpture, is easily envisioned in a Tuscan decor, such as that of the home on the Italian Riviera where it previously resided. Dramatic sweeps of color across its warm, glowing surface, including terracotta, russet, sand and ochre, lend tremendous depth and movement, greatly enhancing the intricate filigree of the medallion and enclosing surround, offering compelling artistic nuance to satisfy both the antique rug connoisseur and the discerning design professional.
