Beautiufl and Fine Antique Persian Esfahan Shawl, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century РFinely woven and intricately patterned partridges, floriferous bouquets and ornate spandrels decorated with elaborate strap-work accents create a phenomenal and exceptionally detailed composition. Created in Esfahan circa 1879, this elaborate antique Persian Esfahan shawl depicts a kaleidoscopic array of traditional patterns rendered in a selection of neutral colors that are set over a fiery brick red field. Reciprocating outer borders with ornamental niches are placed against bold monochromatic sections and delicate boteh motif borders that enclose the splendid field. The beautiful double-medallion composition is outlined with intricately detailed strap-work borders and spandrels decorated with ornamental botehs. This finely detailed antique Esfahan Shawl features intricate patterns juxtaposed against the bold monochromatic background. Flourishing French-curve spandrels with ornamental niches highlight the bold monochromatic field while emphasizing the sweeping ogival outlines and sophisticated Indo-Persian style.
