(Connoisseur-Caliber) This superb 140-year-old Afshar reveals a timeless sensibility in the way it balances interconnected regions of positive and negative space. Within its unique allover design, twin columns of graphic diamond medallions benefit from the profound depth of midnight indigo dye, creating slightly asymmetrical niches where these enigmatic motifs appear to vibrate in place. The rug’s energy is redoubled by the concentric surrounding diamonds, then taken even further by continually reinvented borders that are an order of magnitude more varied and creative than those seen in lesser Afshar examples. Antique Persian carpets of such superior artistry bring a special drama and intense visual interest to contemporary interiors, as so many of our decorative and collector clients have discovered.
