(High-Collectible) (“The Potomac Collection Spring 2019") An exceptionally crisp design, luminous wool and luxuriously deep colors enrich this memorable piece that although of area size proportions embodies the grandeur of this style. In very good condition, it is hard to describe the jewel-like quality of the rug. Artistically, its innovative design confidently combines classic motifs from this tradition in new roles, most striking being the exquisitely expanded herati diamond that fills the medallion. The dexterously spaced ornamentation in the borders is mesmerizing and well defined in execution, continuing the accents of slate blue, teal, celadon and sapphire that give this work such striking character.
