Antique Ghiordes Carpet, late ninteenth century - A dominant medallion floats serenely on the quiet, expansive field of this sumptuous antique Ghiordes. It is filled with graceful volutes and arabesques teaming with life and movement. The rhythm of its scalloped outline and delicately drawn pendants adds to the engaging contrast between the energy of vigorous detail and the solitude of openness. In each corner, a filigree of tracery peers from beneath the border, adding an extra measure of sublime elegance. The ivory ground shows subtle variations in tone, abrash, add life and depth to the surface.
