Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) A special treat for enthusiasts of the folk art Bakshaish style, this entirely one-of-a-kind, late19th century runner in wonderful condition offers highly desirable expansive dimensions and striking elemental design. Its dynamic use of warm natural camelhair infuses its notable over 15ft length with profound depth and movement. Joined by a thin multicolored axis, the three diamond medallions are completely freeform in outline and inner adornment. This balanced asymmetry is enhanced by the grazing animal forms and other spontaneous ornaments scattered across the spacious reserve. Luminous time-softened colors include particularly luminescent mid-tone "Bakshaish blue” highlights. Learn About This Rug Type
