The best 19th century Southwest Persian tribal rugs have become even more highly prized as their numbers have sharply diminished. Among this group, antique Persian Arab Khamseh rugs are the rising stars among connoisseurs for their extraordinarily fine craftsmanship and unique artistry that incorporates a profusion of myriad small ornaments, elegantly composed within an overall cohesion. This absolutely exquisite example is exceptionally eloquent, remaining supremely balanced and serene despite its countless charming, deconstructed bird motifs, winged boteh forms and elemental rosettes. Favoring earthen hues and the deepest indigo blue, its color palette pairs easily with traditional decors or adds an artistic contrast to a more contemporary space. Despite its 140 years of age, this collectors rug has been preserved in excellent condition.
