Tribal Persian Antique Kurdish Bidjar Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – Here is a beautiful, remarkable antique Oriental rug – an antique Bidjar rug, woven by the great Kurdish rug-makers of Persian Kurdistan toward the turn of the twentieth century. This charming piece is resplendent with the sort of detail work and traditional treatment of form and composition that generally go into characterizing Kurdish rugs. The field of this piece is especially intriguing: for while most of it is open, with just the soft beige tone that characterizes the entire piece showing, it is also irregularly dappled with a series of intriguing tribal design elements which dance impishly across the field, each one at least slightly different than the last. This charming composition is further characterized by a series of exciting, traditionally tribal inner and outer borders, each of which is rich with color and detail. A beautiful tribal composition, this antique Kurdish Bidjar demonstrates many of the qualities of tribal pieces that make them so appealing to collectors and admirers of antique Oriental rugs.
