The meandering tree branches mingle with a medley of exquisitely woven flowers and leaves creating a majestic rug throughout this tantalizing composition. The series of borders are equally as compelling, with the masterful color shifts and the complementary tones. With an additional blue background, the Mihrab spandrels seamlessly meld into the overall idyllic design scheme, allowing each stately floral, leaf and branch to be expressed with elegance. The main border showcases the expressive Shah Abbas palmettes design originally found in antique Oriental carpets crafted from the 16th century. The series of guard borders gracefully reflect a traditional pattern of reciprocating floral motifs and complement the majestic colours used within the field. This antique Kashan rug features the classical Persian vase abundantly flowing with an array of delicate blossoms resulting in an exceptionally graceful and balanced composition.
