(Connoisseur-Caliber) Newcomers and experienced clients come to us to find antique rugs of unforgettable artistic impact. The best Bakshaish carpets, such as this deceptively elemental piece, offer an energetic, entirely unaffected composition. Here a field of “dancing” boteh and a sparsely decorated undyed camel’s hair border reflect an unfettered inspiration highly prized by collectors. This antique art carpet’s softly sweeping color swashes of “abrash” throughout the field create quiet undercurrents supporting a naïve pattern of undulating boteh rows. Superb condition increases the allure of this nearly 150-year-old art-level Persian rug. (Featured in catalog Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 25.) Learn About This Rug Type
