Esfahan Rug, Persia, Early 20th Century – This gorgeously intricate and masterfully crafted antique Oriental rug — an antique Esfahan made in Persia during the early years of the twentieth century — is a wonderful example of the tradition to which it owes its existence. This exemplary piece is based around a madder red quatrefoil and vine scroll medallion inset in a secondary medallion woven in a subtle shade of ivory, which creates a stunning background for the colorful flowers and Herati-style arabesque, which is interspersed with ornate cloud bands and richly-detailed motifs. The overall design is completed by magnificent Shah Abbasi borders and supremely-detailed guard bands filled with elegant vine scrolls and palmettes. Complex yet unified, this antique Persian rug is a gorgeous work of art that is also a profound testament to the artistic possibilities inherent in quality Persian rug making.
