Room Size Antique Tribal Camel Hair Persian Bakshaish Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1880 – Here we have a beautiful antique Persian Bakshaish rug, that was woven around circa 1880. Composed in tawny browns, warm peaches and rusts, and soothing teal, the tones of this rug evoke the calming powers of nature. The large-scale floral pattern that makes up the field of this antique Bakshaish rug reaffirms that feeling, and gives the piece a sense of movement.

Aside from its beauty, this rug, like all antique Persian Bakshaish rugs, is incredibly durable and made-to-last. Its durability is due in part to the strength of the wool used in Bakshaish rugs, which comes from sheep grazed in the copper-rich area of Northern Iran. The copper in the soil and water of this area gives the wool an extra strength, unlike wool from other regions.

In addition to its strength, the all-over pattern and neutral hues of this rug make it an incredibly adaptable decorating piece. The diversity in color present in this rug mean that it would look fabulous as part of many different color schemes, from rich wood and jewel tones, to soft beige and sea foam colors. Likewise, the large, all-over pattern of this rug lends itself to both modern and traditionally styled interiors and decors. This Bakshaish rug is a wonderfully adaptive iteration of these artful antique Persian rugs.

With beautiful large scale production, this exciting antique Persian Bakshaish rug beautifully showcases some of the finer points of primitive antique Persian rug design, not least of all an underlying tribal quality. A village rug that is nevertheless overflowing with sophistication, this comely antique Persian carpet features beautifully out sized detail elements, as well as fascinating pallet of contrasting tones. The marriage of colors between the richly decorated borders and the filed, which is riddled with out sized geometric details, gives the carpet a rich sense of unity. The primary border is colored an appealing shade of blue, and decorated with complex tribal vine scroll patterns. Meanwhile, the field, colored a soft shade of brown, is populated with a myriad of traditional Persian design elements, many of which are colored the same shade of blue as the border. A meticulously composed carpet that speaks to the finest trends of Bakshaish rug design, this antique Persian carpet is a wonderful and exciting example.
