("Great Lakes Collection") Fine Tehran Persian rugs woven over 100 years ago are quite limited in number and coveted for their dazzling, ornate artistry and consummate craftsmanship. This wonderfully riotous rug presents an extraordinarily charming fantasy depiction of the natural world, including a variety of birds and mammals, both real and mythical. The namesake vase is the engine that drives this spectacular tableau, with its flamingo handles and verdant corona. In the hilly meadow below, families of deer share this idyll with rabbits and sacred ivory peacocks. A gaggle of avian acrobats and contortionists perform overhead amongst the blooming verdure with the festive plumage of golden cockatoos, keen kingfishers, and harpy eagles sparkling all the way. The weaver's use of color is like that of an enlightened painter orchestrating a harmonious symphony of glorious tones. Virtuoso artistry continues in the vibrant mulberry red border with deer and avifauna in conversation among happy blossoms. This beautiful rug was woven with the utmost dexterity and mind-boggling heavy pile condition, making this masterpiece a rare treasure indeed. GLC rugs cannot be purchased using exchange credit.
