Antique Persian Bidjar Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – On this lovely antique Persian Bidjar rug a diamond hexagonal medallion in soft blue hovers majestically within an open red field surrounded by navy corner-pieces. The entire field is covered by a fine Herati mesh that functions more a texture than design, and its coloration changes along with that of the ground colors. The borders strike a different note with their arabesque vine-scroll design, although the red ground of the main border echoes nicely against the field while also contrasting with the corner-pieces. The antique Persian Bidjar area rugs, like this one, are famed for their fine tight weave, and indeed it is this weave that makes the minute precision of the design possible.
