(Decorative) (“NEW ACQUISITION") This extremely unique Persian Bakhtiari is a stellar example of what makes the best of these carpets standout amongst other 20th century tribal weaving traditions. Its carnelian reserve is bursting with iconography depicting cypress and deciduous tree forms interspersed between elaborate vases holding realistic roses. The ivory main border is painstakingly drawn with repeating heraldic shield designs framed by dragons and individually articulated 'Tree of Life' motifs.
