(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") From the rare group of deeply artistic Persian rugs with fields of undyed camelís hair, this seemingly straightforward piece becomes much more on intimate viewing. Woven with loving care and great dexterity, it offers multiple hues of undyed camel hair brown that create a rhythmical, low contrast latticework, which is clearly articulated with mind-boggling, gem-like precision. The endearing small, ascending hexagonal medallion features two women with trees on their heads. The blush-toned base of the border and its continuous garland of tiny buds completes this pieceís very feminine ambiance. Its endearing character is ideal for a bedroom or master bath, its velvet-like surface in extremely good condition inviting one to walk across it with bare feet. Learn About This Rug Type
