BAKSHAISH CAMELHAIR, Northwest Persian
10' 0" x 14' 0"
(High-Collectible) The Bakshaish village weavers of Northwest Persia occasionally created art-level antique carpets employing undyed camel hair that are widely sought after today. Their earthy hues and casual designs brilliantly complement the clean lines and lighter ambiance of many contemporary decors. This connoisseur-level 19th century carpet presents a beguiling allover pattern and trademark vibrant sapphire and cornflower blues not seen in rugs from other regions. This antique Persian rug’s heavy pile condition is astonishing, especially when considering its 140 years of age. Appearing in alternating rows, two distinct flower motifs are constantly re-invented to create an engaging, animated large room size carpet. (Featured in catalog Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 10.)
