(“Spring 2019 New Acquisition“) Shirvan rugs from the lowlands of the towering Caucasus Mountains are renowned for their fine attention to detail. Offering this sub-style’s unique handling of medallion and border, this rug evokes very imaginative, delightfully whimsical fields of flowers, each reduced to its most elemental geometric form. While the little palmettes within the medallion are strictly ordered between crimson and ivory, the coloring of the repeated blossoms surrounding the medallion is brilliantly asymmetrical and playful, emulating the variability of nature. A heartwarming shade of crimson red in the reserve makes an exciting contrast to the surrounding deep blues, ivory and saffron gold. (INQUIRE ABOUT THIS RUG AT CLAREMONT 2, 1-800-883-1815)
