beautiful Red Background Antique Persian Bidjar Rug Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Saturated sanguine reds and strong designs give this antique Oriental Bidjar runner carpet a regal countenance associated with these so-called “iron rugs.” The lavishly appointed field of this runner rug showcases an endless pattern of tightly repeating Herati motifs with delicate green stems, blushing blossoms and the iconic Mahi or fish design rug motifs, which display a rainbow of colors. This lavish, traditionally Persian design is juxtaposed against rather narrow midnight blue borders that display lush rose-blossom bouquets and flourishing ribbons that have a distinct European influence. The feminine countenance of these blushing blossoms is tempered by the heavy saturated colors that give these prized carpets a traditionally masculine appearance. Robust colors, knot-width outlines and beautifully drawn designs give this sophisticated antique Persian Bidjar carpet a regal style that fits the European aesthetic and a traditional standard of elegance.
