(High-Decorative) Extremely unusual boteh-adorned cornerpieces are reminiscent of a fine Near Eastern shawl in this very whimsical antique Persian Halvai Bijar (Bidjar) rug. In this subgroup known for its extremely fine knotting and crystal clear design work, this 19th century rug boasts a composition that is tremendously crisp and clear. Its soft, low-contrast field and ethereal aquamarine blue medallion allow the corner pieces and striking ivory border to assume a prominent place in this art rug's visual program. The fineness and durability of its weave will enable this robust, over 100-year-old village carpet to be enjoyed for many decades to come. Learn About This Rug Type
