Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“New Acquisition Sampling") Seasoned antique Oriental carpet aficionados will recognize the one-in-the-world design of this truly unique 19th-century Persian town antique rug. Upon a soft ivory ground, this diminutive piece marries the symmetry of formal rugs with the joyful coloration, surprising color shifts, and geometricized drawing found most often in tribal carpets. Such an inventive piece often makes an excellent candidate for hanging on a wall where, at eye level, even the uninitiated will find themselves engaged by its exuberance and hidden balance. Especially delicate rendering is given tremendously effective nuance by the fullest range of rare green tones, from rich forest green and teal to soft celadon and olive. Learn About This Rug Type
