Antique Persian Rugs — Antique Gabbeh Persian rug from Southwest Persia, circa 1940’s – A lovely design of almost childlike simplicity unfolds across the variegated tan ground of this magnificent tribal Persian Gabbeh. Stylized animals, tents, and wagons are arrayed across what appears to be a nomadic desert landscape. The arrangement of these forms sways with rhythmic shifts, echoing the variations of tone in the tan ground. The distribution of the various colors reds, apricots, tans, green, brown, and black is also carefully choreographed, reminding us of the great design sophistication that lies just below the surface of this seemingly simple tribal antique Gabbeh rug.
