Magnificent Large Blue Background Antique Bakshaish Persian Rug 49299, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1880 – Antique Persian Bakshaish rugs were created in the same Northwest Persian region as the Heriz rugs. The antique Persian Bakshaish rugs are renowned for their artistic presentation, most notably in their diverse variations of both classical Persian rug designs and modern use of vibrant colors. This 19th century Persian Bakshaish combines the strong contrast of warm and cool tones with breathtaking, angular grounding motifs. Several outlines surround each other to create a brilliant series of borders, all of which lead to a larger central one that houses the most action. At the core of the large rug, several geometric motifs are presented in a repeating pattern, the strong lines coming together to further ground the masterpiece.
