(High-Collectible) This 175-year old, entirely original collector's Bijar (Bidjar) antique Persian carpet offers a tour-de-force performance in every respect. Virtuoso split palmettes, connected by wildly spontaneous ribbon-like vinery, combine with a naturally dyed palette that includes numerous exotic color tones. Its rare artistry continues in the closely integrated field pattern, where majestic medallions parade in luminous, constantly shifting hues. Learn About This Rug Type
