Northwest Persian Antique Rug
3' 8" x 4' 3" (112cm x 130cm) Circa 1900
This incredibly charming folk art rug offers a wonderfully whimsical design, fully embracing the beauty of asymmetries. The weaver clearly felt no need to put her medallion in the very center or make all of her lines perfectly straight, a decision that serves to animate the overall composition. The corner spandrels are uniquely elemental, with the upper and lower having wonderfully different proportions, creating a spirited sense of movement in the design. Combined with soft bronze and dusky rose, luminous azure blues, and a rich coral greatly enhance the entirely successful color palette. Its convenient, virtually square mat size and heavier pile condition add to its appeal.
