Antique Persian Bidjar Rug, Origin: Persia – The famous iron rugs of Persia exude masculine sophistication, and this stunning antique Bidjar rug is no exception. These distinguished Persian carpets are known for their exceptionally durable wool fibers and regal designs, which bear northwestern hallmarks. This striking example displays a superb all-over arabesque with prominent botanical and floral features set over an exquisite ruby-red ground. Soft earthy rosettes linked by quadrilateral vine-scrolls meander across the robust red field, which displays a gently oxidized abrash. The Bidjar rugs‘ distinctive northwest Persian style is revealed completely in the reciprocating floral guard-bands and broad main borders, which feature contorted calyces, serrated leaflets and opulent turtle-and-vine-scroll motifs. Soft apricot accents, strong reds and clear blue hues create an elegant effect that emphasizes the carpet’s tangible qualities and the subtleties of the detail-rich design.
