BAKSHAISH RUNNER, Northwest Persian
3' 10" x 13' 9"
117cm x 419cm
(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Ennobled by resplendent tonalities, this wonderfully preserved mid-19th-century Bakshaish runner offers the winsome, uninterrupted, highly coveted ambiance of this style. Bakshaish carpets were virtually never woven in runner dimensions, much less at this impressively early provenance. We find goldenrod and aged coral medallions, a delightfully "suggested" latticework, serrated frond and rosette motifs, and intensely personal individual bird and gazelle forms coexisting seamlessly, assuring an always uplifting stroll along its length.
