A masterpiece of art and elegance, this one directional artwork shows no repetition in its expansive creme field elegantly decorated with various exotic birds, rosettes and dragon heads, all linked together by an undulating turquoise arabesque "eslimi". The border shows the dominant Napoleon III style prevalent in courtly Qajar arts of the second half of the 19th century.
