Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") An unexpected multi-lobed overscale medallion brings an immense vitality to this incredibly artistic late 19th century Laver Kirman court rug, where lush patterning is combined with relaxed negative spacing and uniquely creative accents. Illuminated by a soft ivory reserve, unusually deep tones of resonant cranberry enchantingly achieve lift off, bolstered by a surrounding composition filled with surprises, including an elegant iris and starflower border and the unique, impressionistic persimmon spandrels. Close inspection reveals more and more layers of skillfully drawn blossoms and lyrical flourishes in the reserve, that could only be accomplished by a deftly skillful hand. As if this abundant visual richness was not luxuriant enough, its extremely good condition and seldom seen 4x7 dimension offers highly sophisticated decorative possibilities. Learn About This Rug Type
