14' x 19'4 Oversize Antique Persian Bidjar Rug / Palace sized Persian rug / 14x20 Persian vintage rug

Regular price $7,400.00

Handwoven and locking in beautiful art, design and charm, this wool Antique Persian sets the mood in a grand way. Palace sized and from the late 19th century, this NorthWest Persian comes to us from the city of Bidjar. It is a very heavy rug, in comparison to its Persian neighbors, and it’s not just because of its size. Bidjar rugs are known to be more stiff, thick and most of all, super durable. The wool knot heads on this rug were originally beaten down after being woven, resulting in very dense and closely compacted wool per inch.  At an age of about 140 years, it is beautifully worn, rich with character and still has so much more life to give. 

The field of this rug features a water garden design woven in, known formally as “Herati” design. If you look closely, you will see the elements of fish repeating with circular heads throughout the field of the rug. What really catches our eyes and attention though, are those distinguished and whimsical medallions running through the brilliant border. The rich design and the color palette of this royal rug draws us in. The contrast is sensational and the exquisite border hugs the field of the rug brilliantly. 

This rug is low pile and you can see the scattered wear throughout. It is defined by its timeworn character and immense size and presence. This rug is one of the heaviest in our collection and due to this region’s heavy duty wool, we would have to truck this item to its next destination. Don’t worry, shipping is still on us!
Hand knotted with vegetable dyed wool circa 1880
Please note, this rug has about a one foot patch in the border.
