(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“New Acquisition Sampling") Of great interest to connoisseurs of tribal Oriental rugs, this nearly 150-year-old South Persian Qashqai tribal is replete with the whimsical charm of its nomadic origins. A multiplicity of freely drawn traditional motifs, including bright blossoms and charming animal designs, fill a deep indigo reserve with two organically drawn hexagonal medallions. A very well-executed "basket weave" design and intricate border suite complete this absolutely delightful antique tribal rug, accentuating the exceptional dexterity of its weaver, who was clearly adept at both naive and precise drawing.
