Tribal Antique Oversized Persian Bakhtirari Rug 48042
Beautiful Tribal Antique Oversized Persian Bakhtirari Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – A starkly intriguing large oversized tribal design covers the body of this antique Persian rug, featuring tilted diamonds centered with four-petaled flowers. Each of these blossoms, with four large leaves reaching for the compass points, nestles amid a collection of smaller flowers with the same simplified style, solid colors set off by narrow line-work. These diamond medallions form a network over the piece, connected by geometric embellishments in white, yellow and blue over a black background. This beautiful and impressive, antique Persian Bakhtiari rug, features a high contrast between these tones gives the piece a mesmerizing visual appeal, capturing the eye and leading it along angular paths. A set of pale borders encloses this space, the widest backed with the dusky blue and arrayed with exotic blossoms rendered with symmetry and artful, dark line-work. Narrow bars with simplified vines and simple, minuscule flowers flank the wide border.
