Antique Persian Bidjar Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – This marvelous Bidjar Wagireh sample rug or sampler carpet created circa 1880 features an exquisite repeating pattern of elaborate polychromatic shrubs with colorful blossoms and angular foliage that are set over a somber midnight blue background. The obscure field is enclosed by lightly colored borders that add levity to the conglomerate composition. The borders feature a medley of ornate vine-scrolls, including broad palmettes with strong outlines and delicate vine-scrolls with soft green tendrils and meandering extensions. Oxidized Persian blue minor borders punctuated with delicate salmon and amber blossoms create a final enclosure that completes the elaborate composition. The spectacular repeating shrubs featured in the field are bound with horizontal end pieces featuring a classic reciprocating vine-scroll pattern outlined with somber accents.
