Antique Bidjar Persian Rug 41997
This lush antique Oriental Bijar long rug from Persia has a complex Herati pattern rendered within a lively, spontaneous drawing.
Antique Bidjar Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – A complex Herati pattern unfolds in brilliant tones of red, green and yellow across the deep navy field on this lush antique Bidjar long rug. An animated ‘turtle’ of palmette vine-scroll border on a rich red ground encloses the field with a rich, contrasting effect. The free, essentially village drawing of the details gives the piece a lively spontaneity that rugs with this meticulously detailed design often lack.
