Kashan

Early 20th Century
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

This splendid Kashan directional rug is a triumph of color and spirit. An array of flowering vases are arranged around a central medallion, their jewel like colors radiating against a deep indigo ground. Similar colors using ton-sur-ton highlighting gleam from naturalistic renderings of roses and vine scroll against a white ground border. This theme of abundance and color aesthetic, using rich tones against dark with highlights of light, is characteristic of the late Qajar era of the 19th century. Integrating traditional Persian concepts with European style, this piece represents a new Persian classicism, which endured into the 20th century.
