Beautiful Large Antique Persian Bakshaish Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa date: Late 19th Century – Antique Bakshaish carpets like this are prized for the graphic boldness and abstract geometry of their drawing, as well as for the clarity and richness of their color. Here on this Persian rug, a monumental finely stepped medallion with flowering finials holds sway over a cool tan field otherwise occupied only by repeating small floral sprays. A darker camel ground corner piece system embellished with spiky leaves or branches surrounds the field, giving it an indented hexagonal form.
