BAKSHAISH, Northwest Persian

(Connoisseur-Caliber) This striking carpet invigorates the fascination with the Bakshaish weaving tradition. Here, luminous mid-tone blues are evident in spectacular swaths of cobalt, aquamarine, slate and sky blue that shine behind its engaging latticework. Filling each empty space is a dangling ornament that has several iterations throughout the rug but with no exact repeats. Also clearly at work in the naïve border, this constant spontaneity continues, delighting folk art connoisseurs. At 150 years old, this seemingly serene, yet playful small room size carpet is in extremely good condition. Learn About This Rug Type
