Antique Bakshaish Sampler Persian Rug 42086 - For Sale
Antique Bakshaish Sampler Persian Rug 42086
Antique Bakshaish (Bakhshaish or Bakhshaysh) Wagireh from Persia, late nineteenth century Although this charming little rug is a Wagireh - a pastiche of pattern elements to be used as a weaver's guide for making a larger carpet - the design still works beautifully on its own because of the animated drawing and the spectacular quality of the color. The design is remarkably fluid and classical for a Bakshaish, and the interplay of red, mid blue, ivory and gold is simply incomparable. As a small decorative rug, it is a veritable gem.
