Very rare and original ISPAHAN double-faced... - Lot 18 - FEE - Stanislas Machoïr
Very rare and original ISPAHAN double-faced silk and cotton (Iran), 2nd third of the 20th century The carpet has two different graphics on each side (Collector's item) A magnificent anthracite polylobate medallion hosts a starry, ivory and old gold rosette, vegetalized. It is surrounded by interlacing polychrome foliage. The whole rests on an oblong ivory counter-field with Moorish arabesques. Delicate, intertwined, multicoloured flowering branches frame two arrow-shaped pendants. The cream, ivory and turquoise field is adorned with pinkish curling branches. Small floral serrated spandrels. Two cream-coloured counter-edges with plant garlands, highlighted with two-coloured lacework, enclose the main ivory border with a succession of multicoloured corollae, set on an anthracite support and hanging from leafy branches. Great distinction. The pinkish field of this mihrab houses an anthracite floral vase, from which an anthracite cartouche with multicoloured star-shaped plantings emerges. It is framed by two trees of life with intertwined branches and polychrome flowers that serve as perches for six colourful birds. Magnificent turquoise vaults in embraces, adorned with purple scrolls and ivory buds. Two ivory counter-borders with undulating vegetal garlands enclose the main border, also ivory, following polychrome openwork floral corollas set on star-shaped pyramidal supports with purple, old gold and ivory vegetal decoration. Exterior highlighting with positive and negative chess counters.
