(Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Featuring superb workmanship including an exceptional clarity of its graceful curvilinear design, extremely fine knotting, and excellent wool quality, combine to make this Kashan Persian city carpet a superb demonstration of classical artistry and quality still available in some rugs from the second quarter, 20th century. Absolute symmetry controls a mind-boggling array of botanical sprays that encircle the lavish central medallion, all framed by a charming layered Rococo-esque border suite of intertwined palmettes and blossoms. A surprising diversity of tones are sprinkled throughout the crimson reserve, including arctic blue, juniper green, dusky rose, and luxurious golden saffron, each an integral part of its symphony of color.
