3rd Quarter, 19th Century
(High-Collectible) (“The Potomac Collection Spring 2019") Preserved in very good condition, this astonishing 150-year-old Bakshaish demonstrates this prized style’s early artistry at its most visionary. Its majestic, floating medallions and archetypal flowerheads reflect the prized Bakshaish penchant for delightful asymmetry and idiosyncratic expression. Unabated abrash in field, border and splendidly varied mid-tone blue corners add a profound sense of dimensionality and movement within each zone and throughout the carpet. Our clients tell us how enjoyable is masterful color striation, such as seen in this piece, as their lighting conditions change throughout the day. In brilliant counterpoint to the powerful design, palpable joie de vivre is captured in the scattering of myriad tiny tree, flower, and leaf motifs. Learn About This Rug Type
