Antique Qashqai Persian Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Turn of the Twentieth Century – Exceedingly complex throughout, this charming antique Persian Qashqai rug features an exciting array of abstract, geometric shapes, as well as a soft and subdued pallet. Small geometric figures that resemble highly stylized two-dimensional birds appear in the borders as well as the field – not to mention the two stacked medallions and the complex network of corner pieces and side pieces. Inner and outer borders featuring a highly complicated design frame the primary border, the motley procession of detail elements in which reflect the aesthetic direction of the entire carpet. Perhaps what jumps out most about this antique Persian carpet outside of its intricate detail work is the high contrast that exists between dark background color and the ivory flourishes. This high contrast adds to the dynamism that is built into this handsome carpet, which exemplifies some of the most important developments in Qashqai rug design.
