Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery") What a vision of loveliness, seemingly so natural and effortless, yet actually the result of tremendous knowledge and skill. An exceptionally aesthetically pleasing, asymmetric pattern of ever-changing giant flowerheads, palmettes, fronds, and buds meanders across a rare alabaster ground in this enchanting Persian Sultanabad. Bold outlining lends dimensionality and amplifies the visceral impact of every vine, petal, and leaf. Although the composition is relatively symmetrical in the horizontal, one should take on the challenge of spotting the gentle, spontaneous fluctuations of line and enjoy the inspired improvisations of the 19th-century weavers. A delicate coloration throughout distinguishes this masterful botanical vision with unusual hues of burnt sienna, golden wheat, merlot, dusky azure, and ethereal celadon with painterly chromatic gradients of every shade, their recipes now lost on the waves of time. Its wonderful grand scale motifs and seldom found nearly square large room-size creates a profound impact in concert with a wide variety of interior decors. This well-conceived village carpet's fantastic medium pile condition ensures a bright new future ahead for it and its fortunate owner.
