(High-Collectible) Preserved in exceptionally good condition, this astonishing, more than 150-year-old Bakshaish demonstrates this prized style’s early artistry at its most visionary. Its majestic, floating medallions and archetypal flower heads 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. Our clients living with this style tell us as their lighting conditions change throughout the day how masterful color striation, such as seen in this piece, is so enjoyable to watch. 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
