TEHRAN "VASE RUG", North Central Persian
4' 7" x 7' 1"
140cm x 216cm
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
(High-Collectible) ("Spring/Summer 2019 Print Catalog, p.23")This is a superlative example of the elegant, yet effervescent 19th century Tehran style that is so rarely found that even few connoisseurs are familiar with it. Close examination reveals umpteen birds hidden in its foliage and small rabbits hopping along its main border. The diversity of flora and fauna is supported by an equally varied natural palette, adding exotic shades of mulberry, moss, garnet and robinís egg blue to this astoundingly rich presentation. With virtuosic inspiration, the axial centerline, rather than continue with a single stalk up the middle, opens allowing flowering boughs to divide as they ascend upward reflecting nature's unpredictability.
