("New Arrivals Gallery") From one of the pre-eminent early 20th century Persian workshops, this elite Dabir Kashan rug, brilliantly designed in the City floral tradition, harbors a stunning jewelry box appeal. Absolute symmetry controls a mind-boggling array of colors and luscious floral forms that circle the beautiful teardrop medallion. Each motif is drawn with naturalistic precision and given a spectacular backdrop from the deeply resonant Aegean green reserve. Ivory highlights in the red on red spandrel fringe glisten, echoing the roses in the field. This sumptuous, virtually full pile weaving boasts a joyously broad palette of gem-toned hues that animate and infuses this artistic performance with greatly enhanced animation and visual intrigue. The articulately resolved border hosts fan palmettes and elaborated pomegranate forms that anchor a variety of fresh, gently meandering blooms.
