Vintage Persian Qashqai Kilim, Origin: Persia, Circa: 1920’s – Here is a charming and exciting vintage Persian rug – a Qashqai kilim of mid-century origins. Starkly minimalistc in design, this fetching kilim is deceptively simple: for while upon first glance the piece seems to broadly consist of a simple black border and a field of stripes, it is in fact a much more complex – albeit brilliantly understated – composition. The profound contrast impressed upon the beholder by the playing together of the stark black border and the more colorful field actually subtly shifts upon closer look: for woven into the stripes of red, blue and green of the field are double bars of black, which magnificently incorporate the strength of the border throughout the piece, creating a sense of unity and balance. An exciting mid-century composition, this Qashqai kilim speaks to the enduring power and influence of minimalism.
