BAKHTIARI COMPARTMENT RUG, Central Persian
4' 6" x 6' 6"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“Spring 2019 New Acquisition“)From the cherished nomadic Bakhtiari weaving tradition, this superb 19th century piece is an accomplished work presenting a resplendent wide color spectrum, a signature dexterity of this style, and an adroit, adventurous patterning. A dazzling abrashed crimson background supports a most nuanced light salmon, sage green, vivid sky blue, buttercup yellow, and teak brow—both within the syncopated central design and the rug’s three borders. This early example of the high-spirited artistry of this tribe remains in full original pile condition. Learn About This Rug Type
