Antique Persian Bidjar Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – A delicately rendered medallion in soft green floats within a scintillating Herati mesh contained by a yet larger hexagonal medallion in red on this antique rug. The remainder of the field is comprised by blue corner-pieces filled with a Herati mesh on blue. The central medallion is adapted to produce the main border design, with an inversion of color, while simpler vine-scroll minor borders enclose the main one. The design of the borders as well as their color provides a nice contrast to the Herati ornament that dominates so much of the field.
