Antique Bakshaish Persian Carpet, (Bakhshaish or Bakhshaysh) late nineteenth century - The design on this antique Bakshaish runner is a classic Serab design - hexagonal medallions with small human and animal motifs on an open camel ground, enclosed by stylized vinescroll borders. The weave and the lively impressionistic drawing style, however, are typically Bakshaish, as is the stunning color. Bakshaish carpets always have a special excitement. No matter what design they utilize, they always add something arresting and special. This piece is no exception.
