(High-Collectible) Our wide-ranging collection of antique Bakshaish rugs, an incredibly highly regarded style that effectively marries vitality and whimsy, is exemplified by this singular, nearly 175-year-old masterwork in very seldom-seen, extremely large dimensions. In this breathtaking, fluidly elemental piece, delightfully imaginative shapes are freely scattered across a wide field, imparting an absolutely mesmerizing, spontaneous atmosphere. Masterfully executed abrash (intentional color striation), is seen notably in its field and generous main border, adding a sense of texture and great visual interest to this High-Collectible village carpet on a grand scale. It is wonderfully preserved in exceedingly good condition, especially when considering its great age. Learn About This Rug Type
