Vintage Persian Gashgai Tribal Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa date: Middle 20th century – Here is a vibrant and dynamic vintage rug – a Qashqai tribal piece, resplendent with bright colors and a characteristic modern aesthetic. Almost square in format, this charming vintage rug is bounded by golden vertical bars in the upper and lower portions, effectively parsing the rug into three sections. Within the center portion, vibrant green and blue swaths serve as the backdrop for a pair of bright red swaths, each punctuated with a small triangular figure of the same tone of gold found in the vertical bars. Colorful throughout, this Qashqai rug is reminiscent of minimalistic modern paintings, in which the colors themselves speak to the subject of the work. An exciting exercise in modern design, this Persian rug represents a brilliant coming together of an ancient craft with modern aesthetic ideas.
