("New Arrivals Gallery") Superb clarity of drawing, top-caliber craftsmanship, and a wide array of soft jewel tones combine to make this century-old Kashan a premier demonstration of classical artistry and quality. Nearly absolute symmetry controls an abundant verdure of floral forms that unfurl around the carnelian lotus-centered lobed medallion woven with life-like verisimilitude and exquisite detail. Its lush color palette is silhouetted against midnight indigo and encompasses butter yellow, cerulean, coral, arctic blue, and juniper, with hints of emerald and apricot peppered throughout. The sculptural treatment that touches upon every botanical element in the field continues in the charming border. With its silky lanolin-rich wool, extremely fine knotting, and excellent condition, this captivating Persian City rug would make a fitting addition to a sophisticated home environment.
