(“LONDON VAULT COLLECTION")
The elemental quality of this antique carpet captures the artistic freedom and rustic sensibility of this style that has gained an international following of connoisseurs . Constructed nearly 160 years ago when the Bakshaish folk art tradition was unencumbered by market constraints, this large room size rug achieves a skillful dimensionality and an artistic fluidity that is mesmerizing. A softly undulating copper tone fills the hexagonal reserve while an even more deeply variegated blue masterfully adds drama. The floating nature of various tendrils in the field and the expressive meandering rosette and oak leaf pattern in the wide antique ivory border demonstrate remarkably casual and confident drawing. Reaching nearly 15 feet and in very good condition, this rare piece will comfortably support a large seating area.
