(High-Collectible) A masterwork of the highly esteemed Bakshaish style, this dynamic 140-year-old antique Oriental carpet demonstrates a truly unique, grand scale treatment of the iconic medallion-on-open-field format. Filled with a delicate floral latticework, the medallion's unusual oval outlines appear to float upon its open carnelian reserve, whose impact is heightened by the naturally dyed rug's virtuoso use of abrash color-shifting. An inestimable power and beauty is gained from the perfect balance between its many-sized design elements, making this a magnum opus of the folk art style. Its remarkable heavy-pile condition strengthens its status as a superb art rug investment for an antique rug collector. Learn About This Rug Type
