("New Arrivals Gallery")A premier example of a rarely seen style, this 150-year-old Bakshaish mat presents the trademark Baskhaish "Window to Eternity" open field pattern to tremendous visual effect. The rug's subtly abrashed (intentionally color shaded) carnelian red field, delicately patterned corner spandrels, and borders combine with its extremely fine weave and a glass-like surface to create a sense of great dimensionality. The dark undyed camelhair that is traditionally reserved for the field in Bakshaishs of this style is effectively employed as the rug's outermost border. Note in particular the tremendous attention to detail in the borders, a sign of both its weavers' great dexterity and love of her craft.
