(Connoisseur-Caliber) In an extremely versatile size and shape for a single seating area, or as part of a suite of carpets, this is a quintessential example of the Bakshaish handling of a favorite Persian allover design called “Herati.” Based around a diamond and four leaves, the repeated Herati pattern seems to float above the subtle but consistently striated background of brown tones, infusing a beguiling sense of depth in the field. Rendered in a wide palette of cheerful colors, the lattice-like arrangement skillfully affects a quiet, rhythmic animation. A traditional Bakshaish border, featuring the rosette and oak leaf meander, also glows from the mesmerizing strokes of red hues, from the peach to strawberry, to russet. Learn About This Rug Type
