Antique Tribal Persian Room Size Bibikabad Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 – An allover design of palmettes and swirling vines repeats rhythmically in staggered horizontal rows across the field of this sumptuous antique rug from Bibikabad. The color of the ground, alternating between a deep cognac and ivory, helps to articulate and distinguish the successive rows, giving them a cartouche or shield-like quality. A finely drawn ‘turtle’ vine-scroll main border on a cognac ground continues the design texture and coloration of the field, while ivory-ground minor borders echo its striped effect. Despite the rich complexity of the design, the warmth and restraint of the palette adds a note of relaxed elegance.
