The devoted, painstaking craftsmanship found in the finest antique rugs woven in the city of Isfahan, such as the coveted-by-collectors vase format shown here, results in dextrous, extraordinarily fine knotting and chiseled, confidently expressed design work. Each fluid, lyrical line of its flowery boughs, trees, and leafed vinery is drawn with great precision and incredibly realistic, resulting in the meticulous ornamental detail of the feathery-handled urn at the bottom and highly exacting standards of workmanship. A wide palette of vegetally sourced shades of gold abounds, along with equally magnificent burgundy, platinum and garnet, celadon, and luminous sapphire applied with a masterful sense of shading, highlights and dimensional perspective. Its fine weave, combined with exceptionally soft wool and heavier pile, meld with its stunning visual impact, yielding a robust sensory experience.
