Tribal Antique Persian Bakshaish Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This exciting antique Oriental rug — a Bakshaish piece made in Persia toward the end of the nineteenth century — is a fascinating and vibrant rug of impeccable design. Recalling the unique design of Serab rugs, this rug features bold hexagonal medallions connected in series that run down the length of its natural camel field, making this a gorgeous runner of the highest order. A serrated vine leaf border on a soft red ground frames the field, enclosed by two additional minor ivory-ground vine scroll borders. The rich color and detail of the border system provides a marvelous contrast to the larger scale, simplicity and cool tones of the field. A study in the tremendously varied possible avenues of design and function that a well made antique rug might occupy, this beautiful Bakshaish represents a truly wonderful achievement.
