BAKHTIARI GARDEN COMPARTMENT RUG, Central Persian, 4ft 4in x 6ft 9in, Late 19th Century




A rare Bakhtiari Garden Compartment antique Persian Rug

 

Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present this rare and highly collectible addition to our featured arrivals collection, a stunning area-sized Bakhtiari “Garden Compartment” rug. This 125-year-old Persian Bakhtiari rug is absolutely charming, depicting an especially whimsical interpretation of a traditional and much sought-after “Garden Compartment” design in a masterful array of jewel toned colors. Through the desire to create unwavering visual appeal, its adventurous weaver intentionally made each and every compartment novel and unique. Continual variation in outline, proportion, and the splendid variety of inner ornamentation are skillfully combined to create an irrepressible, seemingly spontaneous energy. Scarlet and brilliantly abrashed sapphire blue highlight the tribal people’s love of intense color, while the soft burnished gold accents illuminate the compartment design in an especially luxurious and entrancing way. Very few art-level 19th century Bakhtiari rugs have survived, especially in such outstanding condition, and this area size gem is certainly among the most precious pieces that remain from this pre-commercial period. The size and artistic merit of this beautiful rug make it a very versatile piece, suitable for display on the wall as well as the floor.
