This small, charming square-shaped rug uses a design that incorporates motifs and elements found exclusively in Afshar weaving. Cruciform devices, composed of four flower heads of a distinct serrated petal type, are set within a lattice of small coiled rose flowers and stems. More complete rose bushes with open flowers are drawn in each corner, while the border is likewise made up of roses drawn in a particularly Afshari rendition of the Persian 'gol-i farang' type. a blue ground color, which modulates from tones approaching slate to a deep indigo, heightens the depth and richness of the piece.
