Tribal Antique Geometric Persian Bakshaish Carpet, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Final Quarter of the 19th Century – Here is a dynamic and exciting antique rug – an antique Bakshaish carpet that was woven in Persia during the latter decades of the nineteenth century. Impeccably woven, this comely Bakshaish is characterized by an intriguing and traditional composition, as well as an inviting palette of reds. Geometric detail elements appear throughout; beginning with the borders and working inward, a delightful series of finely crafted details interact with one another, infusing the entire carpet with a sense of energy. The blues and greens that serve as the foundations for most of the detail work contrast brilliantly against the dark red of the border, as well as against the pale red of the field. Within the field, a marvelous tree motif unfolds: colorful blossoms bedeck the many angular branches of a strong central tree. Abstract geometric details intermingle with these floral elements, giving the carpet a sense of dynamism and bold experimentation. A unique and beautiful work, this antique Persian Bakshaish carpet is an intriguing example.
