Antique Persian Bakshaish Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Antique Bakshaish rugs and carpets are famed for their boldly graphic and tribal designs, but this unusual and lovely Bakshaish runner has a classic Persian ‘Herati‘ design rendered with consummate elegance and exactness. The gorgeous palette of soft terracotta, green, blue, and ivory set against a chocolate ground, however, is classic Bakshaish, and indeed, the palette is the glory of this carpet. Persian vine-scroll borders on terracotta and blue pick up nicely on the coloration of the field, while also preserving is fine scale and detailed design. And in true Bakshaish tradition, the lustrous wool pile adds considerably to the beauty of the design on this fine antique rug.
