(High-Decorative) (“New Acquisition Sampling") This deeply artistic allover Bijar demonstrates the harmonious color sense and captivating botanical drawing for which the best antique town rugs are perennially sought after. It presents a beloved all-over design known as "Harshung", often chosen for sophisticated decors. Here this ancestral pattern adeptly taps into centuries of experience in creating repeating patterns that are not predictable, instead offer a lively interplay of pattern and color underfoot. Its rhythmic alteration between color selections within the cohesive arrangement of effusively blossoming rosettes creates a subtle pulsating effect. It is an incredibly sturdy, full-pile piece as well. Learn About This Rug Type
