(High-Collectible) This more than 180-year-old antique Bakshaish carpet offers a superb level of craftsmanship and harmonious artistry. A nuanced natural palette, extreme cohesion of design and the inimitable patina of great age make it particularly noteworthy. Profound asymmetry is present throughout the composition, while virtuoso abrash color striation adds great depth, permitting archetypal tribal design elements to advance and recede in space. The abundance of folkloric artistry and mastery of color give this early village art rug a seldom-seen presence. Learn About This Rug Type
