This highly decorative rug is characterized by a complex design and an inviting pallet of soft blues and golds. Perhaps the most striking characteristic of this highly impressive antique Persian rug is the sheer intricacy of the detail work that appears throughout the piece, from the meticulously wrought borders of fetching floral and vine scroll elements, to the massive monumental central medallion, the scale of which is so grand that it is nearly too large to fit between the borders. Antique Persian rugs such as this Bakhtiari are the manifestations of sophisticated weaving methods and techniques, representing the pinnacle of classical rug weaving. Resplendent with all of the hallmarks of a classically designed Bakhtiari rug, this beautiful piece is a remarkable composition.
