Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery") The centuries-old "Tree of Life" design is given new artistic life in this finely woven area size jewel. Elegant animal forms are sheltered beneath the effusive blossom-laden boughs that emerge from a beautifully ornamented vase, which like all the motifs, is drawn with intricate, hand-crafted distinction. A central tree supported by a small grove of cypresses spreads its artfully executed blossoming boughs while retaining carefully balanced proportions. A fanciful botanical border echoes the field's naturalistic theme, increasing the endearing presence of this naturally charming rug. A robust, earthy palette and outstanding floor condition further ennoble this exquisite late 19th-century piece.
