Antique Persian Bakshaish Rug, Late 19th Century This antique Bakshaish runner has a bold design and a vibrant, yet harmonious color palette. The red field has an overall pattern of geometric floral motifs. The ivory of the innermost border contrasts nicely with the red of the field; next is a reciprocal trefoil border rendered in stunning, deep aubergine and red; the outer border of camel hair is open and simple, with only a few rosettes and square design element. This rug has a truly charming folk art aesthetic.
