(Connoisseur-Caliber) Extremely rarely found, especially in a carpet of great size, this venerable 150-year-old antique carpet offers an entirely singular design that attests to the avant-garde nature of the prized Persian Bakshaish artistic tradition. Striking abrash color striation fully occupies the wide luminous crimson reserve, which is entirely unadorned but for the virtuoso use of abrash (purposeful color striation). Standing in brilliant juxtaposition is a series of lushly ornamented borders and spectacular camel-hued cornerpieces. A robust, unusually saturated palette further enhances this deeply compelling incredibly finely crafted collectible 19th century antique art carpet, which is perfect to grace a memorable dining room.
