(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")At over 150 years old, this absolutely singular Shahsavan runner reveals profound clarity of color and exquisite, original drawing, where each motif is incredibly individual. The alternating hexagon and lozenge medallions is an inventive, unique patterning that lends a sense of stateliness to the tribal piece. Its aged color palette is sublime, shimmering with patina. Look closely to see the fascinating abstraction of paired blossoming trees, with no two expressed exactly alike. Its artistry is so profound that each juxtaposition of pattern and tonal value would be a highly compelling focus if presented alone in a modern art piece. Learn About This Rug Type
