Offering an impressive level of detail, this superb example of Kashan weaving innovatively superimposes delicately drawn center medallion on an elaborate Persian garden. Each elaborately constructed design is rendered further impressive when viewed in conjunction with the piece's remarkable symmetry. The "rivers" running through the field feature a sophisticated abrash from cerulean to sky blue, a fluid transition that creates the illusion of a water garden within the rug. A quite fine weave and superb condition at well over a century of age further elevate this singular floral rug attributed ago the Ateshoglu workshop known for creating rugs of elevated craftsmanship and particularly lush imagery.
