Antique Bidjar, Persia, late nineteenth centuryA classic Persian Herati design unfolds with flawless precision in the field of this outstanding antique Bidjar. The design is carefully constructed so that it subtly suggests an underlying diamond matrix with internal quatrefoils. The rich palette of reds and golds is nicely counterpointed by the blue-black ground. In the borders this coloration has a softer effect without the dark grounding, thereby producing a nice framing contrast for the field, while preserving a uniform, decorative design texture.
