Antique Persian Bakhtiari Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – Here is an impressive and energetic antique rug – an antique Bakhtiari rug, woven in Persia around the turn of the twentieth century. Beautifully composed, this antique Persian carpet features an exciting color pallet as well as an intriguing asymmetrical composition. Bold pastel tones that contrast beautifully with the dark blue field infuse the carpet with a great deal of energy. A pair of trees form a great deal of the composition within the dark blue field, their sinuous branches reaching up through a great vertical portion of the carpet. Red corner pieces located in the upper portion of the field frame in this action, just as the beautiful salmon colored borders effectively frame the entire composition. Elaborate detail work appears throughout this Bakhtiari rug, enhancing the starkly contrasting tones that also appear throughout.
