Tribal and Collectible Antique Persian Bidjar Sampler Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This antique Persian Bidjar is one of the rarest and most artistic sampler rugs and features a distinct and eye-catching design. Because they were woven to be a smaller representative sections of “would-be” larger antique rugs, these antique Bidjar sampler rugs are all unique and truly one-of-a-kind examples. Because the background is done in a latte shade with sepia added in for depth, the brighter tones of the color palette come to life in cobalt blue, gentle blush, and delicate orange. The tribal geometric layout features a bold border, rich with floral designs as well as whimsical geometric figures of avian life and humanoid figures. Twisting chains of mature navy create pathways of motion that gracefully lead the eye along the rest of the piece. Artistically, this piece is hands down one of the best and most beautiful antique Bidjar sampler rugs one could ever hope to find.
