Vintage Persian Tribal Gashgai Kilim, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920’s – Here is an exciting and dynamic vintage rug from Persia – a Qashqai kilim with a modern composition. This nearly-square vintage rug is primarily characterized by its interesting, distinct take on the conventional Persian carpet layout, which features an understated border and field demarcation, defined by large and dramatic swaths of color. The border portion of this distinct composition is a soothing shade of blue-green in which the threading of various shades interacts to create a dynamic quality. Much the same might be said about the portion of the piece that corresponds to the field, a wide, unadorned swath of red, with the same shimmering effect found throughout the border area. These two colors – the sea-green and the red – play off of one another in a very specific way, each dramatically contrasting the other, creating an energy that is only enhanced by the intriguing manner in which the border and the field are joined – that is, in a serrated manner, as if the two portions of this kilim rug are two puzzle pieces that fit together. A unique and daring modern composition, this Persian Qashqai kilim is a charming vintage rug.
