Beautiful and Tribal Modern Persian Gabbeh Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Late 20th Century / Modern Rug – Here is a beautiful and unique modern rug – a contemporary tribal Persian Gabbeh rug that was woven in Persia during the latter years of the twentieth century. Historically and generally speaking, the Gabbeh style is perhaps the most immediately recognizable style of Persian rug weaving; highly abstract compositions as well as a lack of regard for classical rug design make these carpets unique and distinct works of art in a category that is practically all its own. This Gabbeh modern Persian rug depicts a graphic pattern of rectilinear bricks rendered in a muted selection of soft primary colors, including abrashed blue, golden-yellow and vivid scarlet-red. Flurries of contrasting flecks adorn each block mimicking the look of meandering seed stitches that emphasize the patchwork appearance of this charming Persian Gabbeh rug. The beautifully patterned field is enclosed by stark borders executed in a monochromatic hue of ashen gray that contrasts the lively field. This exceptional Gabbeh rug from Persia possesses a graphic style that is inherently modern without abandoning the tribal history of this iconic and ever-popular carpet type.
