'No more exquisite harmony was ever realized in any Persian Rug.' Thus was the original silk Isfahan rug of Central Persia described when placed at auction by the Doris Duke Collection _ once the property of that fabled heiress. Woven during the 16th century rein of Shah Abbas, the antique, million-dollar rug has a brilliant quality achieved through the subtle use of 14 shades of color, more than the 8-10 shades more typical of fine oriental rugs. Through scrolling floral vinery and arabesques, the golden-grounded original commands attention with regal poise. Nourison reinterprets this magnificent piece, capturing its glory with exceptional intricacy in the vining pattern and rich, coppery tones with delicate blue and green detailing on a lusciously patinated ground. As commanding of admiration as its original, this highly refined design displays all the qualities of Nourison's renowned artistry and meticulous craftsmanship.
