"Essential reference...a must for collectors, scholars, and dealers."--"Antiques & Auction News" Drawing on the rich weaving traditions of the Near East and Central Asia, Peter Stone's clearly presented text is divided into six major regional and tribal groupings covering Anatolian, Baluchi, Caucasian, Kurdish, Persian, and Turkmen motifs. These are subdivided into more precise attributions and motif types, examining the derivations and uses of medallions, field repeats, and borders, and the relationships between them. Pattern recognition has long been used to determine the origin and age of rugs, and this analysis of designs and their component elements provides a vital key to accurate attribution. Detailed diagrams illustrate the way in which individual motifs are adapted and reinterpreted over time, their evolution crossing historical, cultural, and geographic boundaries. Lavishly illustrated, this study not only is an invaluable aid to identifying tribal and village rug motifs but also provides a treasure house of creative inspiration for designers. 1,600+ color illustrations.
