This absolutely virtuoso rug created by a nomadic Kurdish weaver demonstrates a profound affinity for color. Its kaleidoscopic array of rare, deeply saturated hues, including leaf green, coral, goldenrod and saffron, is its true focus, while its diagonal pattern of wildflowers and deconstructed “s” symbol border play a supporting role. Note the mesmerizing way that slight variations in width and individual floral detail actually make the overall design more harmonious, cohesive and captivating. A must-have acquisition for lovers of folk art carpets, this memorable hand knotted rug in the very rarely seen 5-1/2 x 7 size remains in excellent, heavier pile condition after nearly 150 years since its creation.
