Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") An extremely inventive late 19th century piece, this Persian Dorasht rug boasts a sublimely lyrical display of innovative design elements, oriented in an avant-garde, asymmetrical format. Below an eclectic collection of animated ascending blossoming sprays and vinery, an abbreviated medallion emerges, sharing a common elegance with the other elements of the field. Continually varying, naturally dyed hues, highlighted by soft tangerine, jade green, and Prussian and cornflower blues lend even greater immediacy to this 19th century Oriental carpet's stately, traditional motifs. Lovingly maintained over 13 decades, this highly original area size remain is superb, heavier pile condition. Learn About This Rug Type
