Antique Kazvin, Persia, circa 1900Palmettes, flowers, and sinuous vines wend their way in profusion across the rich red field of this luscious antique Kazvin. The design is carefully controlled in its layout and symmetry despite its dynamic freedom and exuberance. The field elements reappear in the main border as a continuous vinescroll, but set against a blue ground in framing contrast to the field. The meticulous drawing and uniform design texture create a harmonious decorative effect despite the richness of the color and complexity of the ornament.
