(“New Acquisition Sampling") Representing the antique Heriz tradition at its finest, this is an entirely harmonious, sharply rendered, cohesive piece in a treasure trove of resplendent jewel colors. Its seamless, bookmatched allover pattern is drawn with notable crispness, supported by highly intelligent juxtaposition of both contrasting and compatible tones. Against the potent ruby red base, glowing gold, emerald green, coral, ivory and soft jade all play a dexterously planned role in the highly animated, unusually refined botanical arrangement. This effusively ornamental weaving would be particularly impressive in a dining room, library or family area, to be enjoyed equally from any perspective.
