(Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 2, p. 12)At over 140 years of age, this connoisseur-caliber village rug reveals the Bakshaish mastery of inventive abstracted design elements and brilliant color choices. Giving order to the dynamic patterning of this superb large room size carpet is a sublime cerulean central medallion holding a single 8-lobed flower head. A splendid display of highly stylized botanical forms surround it, imbuing the soft persimmon field with great character. The carpet’s elongated proportions allow for striking broad strokes of luminous blue striations in the spandrels that add a potent sense of dimension. With a unique butterfly border framing it, this amazing carpet’s profound artistry is meant to transform a room.
