Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) 19th-century Qashqai weaving from the Shishboluki subtribe is renowned for its extraordinary craftsmanship akin to Persian city rugs and profound level of refinement and compositional harmony. Distilled into a phrasing that is richly elegant, this rug’s classic hexagonal field supports an abstracted allover tapestry of exceptional fineness, with each radiant rosette newly invented for only this piece. Time-softened color makes possible quite ethereal expression. Note the singular emerald green corner piece motifs and the sheer variety of abashed tones within the main border. Its heavy pile makes this larger area rug as practical as it is elegant, as well as enhancing its status as a viable art investment. Learn About This Rug Type
