Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) This extremely finely and lovingly woven antique Persian Shishboluki Qashqai rug exhibits a centuries-old weaving legacy that created a striking geometric vocabulary for finely knotted motifs, a splendid time-immune dyeing process, a deep knowledge of design principles. The finest examples are rare and highly valued by connoisseurs who appreciate Persian tribal rugs. Hiding many secret delights, the intricacy of the rug is quite beguiling, temping a slow, almost knot by knot review to appreciate the many artistic choices that can be seen. Even the smallest detail is filled with elaboration and color. Yet while the complexity of the design is stunningly obvious, the use of spacing also reflects great skill. Note how the tightness of the patterning slowly opens up from the bottom to the top. For those who are fascinated with seeing artistic techniques at work, don’t miss the main border that contains an almost transparent soft peach flower head at regular intervals.
