Spectacular antique Persian rugs are timeless heirlooms meant to be cherished for generations to come. This gorgeous 1920’s antique Persian Bidjar rug is the perfect example with its massive size, fantastic design features, and wonderful color ways.
Bidjar rugs are the iron rugs of Persia because pound for pound, they hold the heaviest wool in their rugs. The master craftswomen would knot and then pound down with a hammer on the loom to pack the wool dense and tight. This makes for a very stiff rug with heavy duty wool, made to last for generations. This amazing rug with its loaded full pile body weighs in at 230 pounds! This stunning rug will grace a home and be the best thing on the floor enhancing any space it lives in.
The graceful curvilinear design of the central medallion complements the botanical theme with a brick red ground and other colors including coral, French blue, ivory, navy blue, midnight blue and dijon yellow, teal, pistachio green and more. The intricate all-over water garden design in the central field, also known as Herati design is an abundance of stylized design and skillful work of years of weaving.
The ornate and spacious art of the corner spandrels allows for the highlighting of the beautiful abrash of the navy blue ground against coral, ivory, French blue and other wisps of colors. The main border furthers the interesting abstract art of the entire design of the rug. Woven with wool dyed with organic materials, such as vegetables, plants, and flowers, the vibrant and saturated colors are remarkable and really stand out.
This old beauty is a heavyweight champ and will take on several generations of love and abuse and will keep on serving. Immense value here on this tycoon Persian.
