QASHQAI, Southwest Persian

3rd Quarter, 19th Century
This adventurous 19th century Qashqai antique rug graphically reinvents the normally refined pattern language of the Qashqai weaving tradition. A pair of vast medallions dominate the field, while a cascade of vividly dyed floral forms and idiosyncratic latticework in the cornerpieces further increase the antique Qashqais energy. The precision of the design in the slender borders provides an effective counterbalance, and further proves the scope of this tribal weaver's creative dexterity. Excellent condition adds to the resounding appeal of this deeply collectible rug.
