(High-Collectible) (“Winter 2019 New Acquisition“) Part of the distinguished subset of "Tree of Life" Bakshaish carpets, this 140-year-old treasure offers a remarkable folk art character with its “forest” of tree forms and sun motif border design. With just four colors and undyed ivory sheep’s wool, an endearing naivete is captured by the inventive layering elemental tree forms across the field. In the beautifully abrashed border, each sun motif has a distinct shape that adds a tremendous joyful, carefree quality to this large room size carpet. A favorite of connoisseurs, antique Persian Bakshaish carpets are unparalleled in their unfettered expression and wide-ranging artistic techniques. This carpet’s neutral background and allover field pattern offers distinctive decorative possibilities for curated to casual decors. Learn About This Rug Type
