Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") 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, as well as 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 for the impressive refinement of this Persian floral piece. Learn About This Rug Type
