(High-Collectible) This virtuoso, very early Halvai Bijar (Bidjar) is a majestic, connoisseur caliber carpet with a mesmerizing centerpiece and virtuoso clarity of design within multiple borders. The transition within its dramatic celestial blue reserve from aquamarine to sky blue and celadon reveals the masterful use of abrash, an intentional color-shifting technique practiced by 19th century weavers. At over 160 years old, its wonderful condition profoundly enhances its investment potential. (Featured in our catalog, Vol. 27. No. 1, p.12) Learn About This Rug Type
