Antique Persian Kurdish Bidjar Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: 1900 -Kurdish rug makers have thousands of years of tradition behind their craft, and their work has long been renowned as one of the most prized expressions of Persian culture and art. The resulting carpets have been sought after since the days when the Silk Road spanned empires. This remarkably unique antique Bidjar rug is a beautiful example of these traditions. It features a vibrant central triple rosette motif on an clean ivory background bordered by superbly colored floral decorations and gracefully scalloped botanical designs. The rich color palette is composed of bold blues, pale golds, and luxuriant greens along with lighter turquoise and ivory accenting. The gloriously bold decorations stand out wonderfully against a sumptuous deep red field. The classic tribal design is finished off with a charming outer border in contrasting colors. The sum effect of the elegantly refined decorations combined with the vivid color scheme make this rug a stunning example of the artistry of its creators.
