(High-Collectible) (“New Acquisition Sampling")This virtuoso example of the regal Afshan wide runner offers an inimitable level of sophistication and refinement for an elite decor. A striking diversity of large stylized flowerheads and angular split palmette motifs, presented in pairs, are striking in their clarity of line and exquisite coloration. Whenever possible, diminutive bird and animal forms are inserted into spaces in this profuse patterning. Upon a rich carnelian base, the highly faceted main border's repeated Kufic motif evokes an ancient past. Learn About This Rug Type
