BAKHTIARI BIBIBAF, Central Persian
4' 6" x 7' 0"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) An art-level antique rug can provide the precious, one-of-a-kind artistic touch that infuses a room with an entirely different and impressive impact. Such is this magnificent Bakhtiari “Bibibaf” (“Grandmother’s weave”) that depicts an idyllic garden theme of verdant, springtime botanical forms in full bloom. It's heavy-pile condition and glistening wool greatly enhance its elegance. The incredible texture and depth in the prized “Mille Fleur” arrangement of cascading tiny flower heads originates from enticing light tones of rose, terracotta and coral and darker lavender and mulberry tones alternating. Effusive floral forms continue throughout the ample main border. Learn About This Rug Type
