Antique Bakshaish Persian Rug 43712
Price: $18600.00
43712 Antique Bakhshaish, Persia, late nineteenth century - An allover array of highly stylized vine sprays and palmettes in shades of red and terracotta repeats across the abrashed blue field of this arresting antique Bakshaish. The drawing is irregular and improvisational, pulsating with spontaneous energy. The abrash or variegation of the field color gives an impression of depth like a limitless sky or sea. The main ‘turtle’ vinescroll border set on red with terracotta ground minor borders offers the perfect contrast to ground color of the field while retaining the tones of the vines and palmettes. Here we see the intuitive sensibilities of villager weavers at their best.
