(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This top-tier Persian village carpet exemplifies the renowned Bakshaish style's great expertise in creating profound visual depth by virtuoso color striation (known as "abrash.") Both the stunningly time-softened carnelian tones of the field's subtle gradations and the main border's wider swath of color shifts are evocative. The distinctive ‘animal skin’ reserve reveals the full expression of magical waves from azure sky to lapis blues. A spacious rosette and oak leaf border pattern dances with mosaic-like floral ornaments throughout the playful matrix. This piece’s remarkable appeal is further enhanced by its unusually fine weave and uncommonly well-preserved condition with medium to heavier pile and no notable restoration. Learn About This Rug Type
