(Connoisseur-Caliber) Elegant and expertly woven, this antique Persian Halvai Bijar (Bidjar) rug evokes a truly lyric quality, distinguished by a pistachio-hued frame and an exceedingly rare design. This 125-year-old Oriental rug's unique and refined arrangement of curling boughs seemingly overflows from the sumptuously striated watermelon red base.
