Antique Persian Bijar Runner, circa 1900 - Only the distinctive, unmistakable weave identifies this extraordinary long rug as an antique Bijar. The stunningly abstract palmettes of the field and the dragon border are features usually encountered on the most sought-after Shirvan or Kuba rugs from the Caucasus, although they are rendered here with an exciting boldness and scale unprecedented in the Caucasian examples. The open camel ground, reminiscent of Serab and Bakshaish rugs, also betrays the Northwest Persian background of this unique and magnificent piece.
