Antique Persian Kashan Rug and Victor Salmones Bronze Sculpture Highlight Auctions at Showplace’ Upcoming SaleSep 25, 2022 12:00 EDT
Known for its stunning variety of rugs, the city of Kashan in Iran was once a prominent landmark on the illustrious Silk Road. The carpets from Kashan have been coveted due to their high-quality sheep wool and cotton material. Crafted in shades of red, blue, and beige, the rugs are adorned with medallions and floral motifs. An antique Kashan silk pictorial rug is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Auctions at Showplace. The early 20th-century Persian framed piece is designed with numerous images, including a flowering vase, a tree with birds and deer in an ivory field, a cartouche, and a shrub border. Another noteworthy lot is a patinated bronze sculpture, titled The Search, by Victor Salmones. It depicts a figure of a man with arms stretched out with a mask on his right arm. The famed Mexico-based sculptor is celebrated for his distinguished realist figures.
A pair of James Mont Asian modern open armchairs also leads the furniture lots. The ebonized and upholstered pieces are designed in a modern Chinese style. Mont draws inspiration from the Art Deco and mid-century modern styles as much as he defies them. Visit Bidsquare to view the complete sale catalog and other online auctions.
