Antique Persian Bakshaish Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – This dramatic antique Bakshaish rug features a rich variety of angular botanical motifs that highlight the expressive hues of brick red and robust Persian blue that are often found in the bold rectilinear rugs of northwest Persia. The expansive ecru-colored field provides an ageless formality and a virtual blank canvas for any interior design plans. Double sets of elegant floral guard bands and outer borders that feature carefully outlined crenellated fences highlight the extraordinary main borders that are the true focal point of the composition. The main borders are adorned with dramatic turtle motifs that showcase hairline edges, linear fins and serrated outlines that are flanked by well-defined Herati leaves. These prominent motifs create a bold yet delightfully restrained statement that counterbalances the high-impact nature of the exquisite monochromatic field.
