An tremendous achievement in a seldom-encountered weaving style, this superbly crafted palace size Dorasht antique carpet demonstrates a deeply engaging natural palette. Its expansive field holds an unusually dynamic allover floral pattern of painstakingly detailed overscale rosettes and flower heads, punctuated at its center by a highly original diminutive medallion in glowing ivory. In this naturally dyed antique Persian rug, the deep rose red field provides an inviting backdrop to its joyous palette that includes a surprising range of rich green and a potent saffron yellow. A sophisticated border suite further reveals its masterful workmanship and great attention to detail.
