Antique Persian Kashan Rug, Persia, Circa 1920 – Regarded as the highest grade of carpets from Kashan, this antique Dabir rug displays a splendid directional repeating pattern with kaleidoscopic shapes and beautifully colored large-scale figures that display immense technical skill and compositional finesse. Opulent ruby-red borders featuring carnation-filled cartouches and graceful floral sprays meander around the perimeter of the field while playfully pointing out the complementary tulip blossoms and sanguine cartouches that adorn the field. These brilliant ruby-red figures are skillfully placed near expressive octofoils, delicate green Tree of Life figures and bifurcated cypress trees that point toward the neighboring tulip bouquets, which are an enduring symbol of prosperity. The abundance of grand architectural motifs is balanced by a background of delicate flower-laden vines that display sensuous curves and a riot of aristocratic colors synonymous with the antique Persian Dabir carpets of Kashan.
