(High-Collectible) The finest of the geometric antique carpets woven in the Northwest Persian village of Bakshaish enjoy an enthusiastic following among serious connoisseurs. This is an entirely compelling medallion on an open field oriental carpet, with a dramatic unadorned base of naturally dyed azure to sky blue, exemplifies this style's elemental, deeply compelling artistry. Its unusually generous width, coupled with its unusually graphic design, makes it very desirable for application in the contemporary designed home. Although approximately 150 years old, it remains in outstanding condition. Learn About This Rug Type
