(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This brilliant, highly innovative antique Persian Tehran rug offers a lyrical, yet surprisingly spacious variation of the Garden Compartment design. Each compartment reveals a different botanic theme, from a cypress grove to floral bouquets and trees set alight with birds. The cumulative shape of those in antique ivory masterfully echoes the form of each individual niche and is surrounded by an astonishing French blue. The spaciousness within each compartment is masterfully contrasted with the midnight indigo border, dense with flowering plants and more birds. This rare, early Tehran remains in very good condition, a splendid piece of art for a formal setting. Learn About This Rug Type
