Large Oversized Antique Persian Tribal Qashqai Rug 50651
Rare and Beautiful Large Oversized Antique Persian Tribal Qashqai Rug, Country Of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – An extravagant forest fills the cream central field of this antique Persian rug. Staggered regularly across the body of this antique Persian tribal Qashqai rug, the orchard is made up of evergreen trees with red and gold ornamentation, turning them into festive depictions. Smaller bushes flank these green figures, rooted in red and blue pots. Many circular flowers in red and yellow surround these arboreal elements, filling the light-hued space with an elaborate design. A slim, dark-hued band with white and red flowers anchors the central field, its black background matching the darkest accents of the main design. A series of vibrant borders edges the antique rug, each filled with a colorful pattern repeating around the entire length and width.
This carpet features a stylized rendition of the cypress tree motif. Cypress trees are familiar sights in formal Persian gardens, reaching skyward toward the heavens. They are a representation of long life and longevity, as they are a long-lived evergreen.
