Fine Antique Persian Halvai Bidjar Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa date: 1880 - A fascinating antique Persian carpet with a commanding presence, this unique and alluring antique Halvai Bidjar rug is an intriguing coming together of what would initially seem to be opposing aesthetic camps. For in addition to its beautifully harmonious balance of starkly contrasting colors, this eye-catching Halvai Bidjar carpet also effortlessly combines a stark, superficially modern minimalism with ornate, flourished elements of classical Persian design. Perhaps the single most striking quality of this fantastic antique Oriental carpet is its unadorned field of deep blood red. The hypnotic quality of such a wide space of such a strong color is enhanced by the use of black in the gorgeous, flowing central medallion, as well as in the ornate corner pieces. Surrounding this pas de deux of minimalism and tradition is an impressively detailed border, also composed in reds and blacks. The overall impression left by this remarkable rug is one of a commanding presence, and a lingering beauty.
