19th-century Dorasht carpets are treasured for their legendary fineness, mature aesthetic sensibility, and sheer rarity, attributes reflected in this woven gem at a rarely found 5-1/4 x 8-1/2 size. Its luxuriant design depicts a profusion of exquisite flowers expressed in jewel-like rectangular facets. The control necessary to achieve such crystalline clarity is visible in the deft dyeing of deep indigo base tone and the majestic boteh-formed border, enclosed in minor bands that suggest embroidered gold filigree. In remarkable condition and having a luxurious handle, this is a connoisseur's delight. Thanks to its poised precision of drawing, smaller formal spaces will particularly benefit the impressive refinement of this Persian floral piece.
