Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery") Since at least the 15th century, this renowned rug weaving center has cultivated an aesthetic of timeless appeal originally funded by the Persian Court, used as gifts of state and for prominent citizens. In this prepossessing carpet, a serenely delicate allover design is elegantly rendered on a glowing cream field where each of the varied floral forms is individually drawn. The palette is a study of what established connoisseurs term "mature color," with hues that include teak, rose, sand, burnished gold, and cranberry that are at once understated and have great depth. Its luminous wool and lyrical drawing add to its lush, botanical quality, making it ideal for the most refined interiors. With dimensions perfect for a gracious foyer or corridor, this nearly 150-year-old floor-worthy carpet remains in very good condition assuring many years of contemplative enjoyment to come.
