Vintage Persian Gabbeh Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 20th Century– This vintage Persian rug is an eyecatching piece with a vibrantly red body, combined with a plush texture for further visual appeal. The bright red is contrasted sharply by white squares in each corner, their blankness setting off the color perfectly on the Gabbeh. A nest of rectangles in white, black, and red rests at the center, creating a frame balanced by more white in the middle. A tricolored border encloses the piece, a set of bands in black, yellow and dark red. The darker shade of red on the outside anchors the work visually, and the pale yellow adds a light distinction complemented by the stark white inside on the antique rug.
