3rd Quarter, 19th Century
(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery")The rarity of finding an authentic, well preserved, folk art carpet that also reflects contemporary design aesthetics is incredibly exciting, and this sublime 3rd quarter, 19th-century Bakshaish embodies those qualities. The major tones of this carpet’s primarily undyed camelhair palette create a masterfully ingenious and understated design, and its near-square dimensions add to the allure of this piece. An ever-changing all-over pattern of alternating, stylized tree and bouquet designs fill the interior and create a subtle sense of decompression as the motifs seemingly contract and expand throughout the field’s arrangement. Set against the prized camelhair background, the soft contrast levels allow the rich tonality of the cinnamon bouquets to punctuate the field. Learn About This Rug Type
