Bakhtiari Rug, Persia – Drawn in a strong angular style, this striking antique Persian rug features a dazzling octofoil medallion with radiant lobed compartments and splendid floral decorations. The medallion’s arching ogival petals are compartmentalized in a unique Bakhtiari fashion and filled with decorative floral sprays that have well-defined features and contrasting outlines. Vibrant poppy red segments juxtaposed against midnight blue figures and crisp white accents add to the drama of the medallion composition, which expands like a kaleidoscopic flower filled with reflected roses, carnations and dainty rosettes. Stylized botanical decorations meander through the ornate borders and strapwork guardbands that circle the field and reinforce the floral theme. This stellar antique Bakhtiari rug makes a dazzling impression and wins over the viewer with tiny details that add to the stylistic richness of the entire picture.
