Antique Persian Bidjar Sampler Rug 49097
Antique Persian Bidjar Sampler Rug 49097, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Unlike many traditional Persian rugs, this beauty is unique because it does not feature a large amount of abstract patterns or motifs. Outside of the single surrounding border, which features a beautiful creamy background that acts as the perfect contrast to the darker elements at the foreground, the heart of the Bidjar rug is meant to convey a scene. Here, the darker background presents several concrete designs, which includes two lions, several shrubs and a variety of flowers throughout. A single strong line, representing a branch, cuts through the heart of the antique rug, leading the viewer’s eyes from one section to the next.
