DABIR KASHAN, Central Persian
8' 9" x 11' 10"
267cm x 361cm
(High-Decorative) From one of the pre-eminent early 20th century Persian workshops, this beautiful Dabir Kashan carpet, brilliantly designed in the floral tradition, is exemplary. On a rare ivory ground, this Oriental rug offers a splendiferous departure from typical red and blue teardrop medallion patterning so often seen from this locale, and epitomizes the distinctive patterning and luxurious craftsmanship of Dabir work. The effect of its exceptional fineness and wool quality is redoubled by full, heavy pile condition that sets its unusually soft and delicate pastel colors aglow. Fluid arabesque vinery incorporates distinct individual flower species and elegant garlands, forming a stunning, singular all-over design highly regarded by city antique rug connoisseurs.
