(Connoisseur-Caliber) Light beige or parchment fields are extremely unusual for a Bijar—we have seen only a handful in our three decades of business. This magnificent connoisseur-caliber Bijar surrounds this eminently desirable attribute with a tour de force exposition of the most luxurious blues imaginable, juxtaposing deep indigo with a profusion of aquamarine, sky blue and sapphire in spacious cornerpieces and pinpoint details. Laden with archaic split palmette motifs, singularly amorphic organic outlines and compressed anchor pendants much shorter than usual, the brilliant medallion is much more innovative than the traditional diamond format typically seen. Abrash color striation and intricate Herati patterning are used with dexterity and sensitivity to add continual movement and visual interest throughout the carpet’s full expanse.
