Antique Persian Bidjar Sampler Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Final Quarter of the 19th Century – This antique Persian Bidjar Wagireh rug, or sampler, from the great weaving city of Bidjar is a splendid example of this fascinating and highly unique rug that has captured the hearts of collectors and historians. This fine example showcases a striking Herati-filled medallion with angular pendants that cut into the abashed camel-tone field, which is dotted with charming birds and isolated floral sprays. This expansive monochromatic surface is framed by ochre spandrels that display an open arabesque with Persian blue vine-scrolls and tomato-red ornaments. These classical motifs are paired with crenellated fence guard-bands, prickly boteh accents, classic leaf and vine-scroll figures and honeycomb borders occupied by distinctive emblems. Symbolic burdock motifs and esoteric space fillers emphasize the charming village aesthetic of this antique Persian rug.
