4' 6" x 6' 11" Circa 1900
(“FALL/WINTER 2018-19 PRINT CATALOG", p. 17)
This consummate quality turn-of-the-century rug stems from the inspired formal Mohtasham design tradition that set the gold standard for all floral rugs in the 19th century. Replete with luxurious, nearly full pile condition, it reflects this finely woven style’s trademark for exceptionally delicate drawing of botanical forms, that has captured the hearts of more than a century of connoisseurs. Rare aqua green, soft pumpkin, and buttercup hues are skillfully supported in contrast to a deeply dyed midnight indigo. Note how the spacious, almost floating main border magically intensifies the field’s profusion of pinpoint detail.
