Small Tribal Antique Scatter Size Persian Bakshaish Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa date: 1900 – Crafted with precision and drawn in a sophisticated style, this antique Persian village carpet exhibits the best features of antique Persian Bakshaish rugs. The heavily patterned lozenge medallion is filled with rectilinear Herati motifs featuring quadripartite centerpieces, star-like palmettes and polychromatic Fish Design Mahi leaves that are precisely outlined and skillfully arranged around a host of small-scale figures. Terra-cotta spandrels embrace the posh ivory medallion while displaying a marvelous continuation of the allover pattern, which takes on a strong masculine appearance thanks to the earthy clay-tone ground. Narrow strapwork borders featuring monochrome stripes, zigzagging running-water figures and meandering floral vines encircle the regal field. The carefully composed borders provide an understated conclusion that allows the beauty of the detail-rich Herati pattern to become the star of this classical antique rug.
