Here's a lovely antique Persian Bidjar rug that is mighty, on an ivory ground with dynamic color contrasts that are superbly set by the weaver. It's from the 19th Century and the amazing central medallion impacts us against the open, ivory field.
There are delightful colors here that have aged and have visual depth and dimension to the naked eye, as well as exquisite abrash that we can celebrate. It will make for a memorable and powerful entry piece, or be styled somewhere that needs a fabulous backdrop to enhance the space with great art and history.
This Persian is a low pile and durable rug on a wool foundation. You'll feel its heavy and amazing old world wool, which is what Bidjar rugs are famed for.
Antique Bidjar, handwoven circa 1880.
Woven with vegetable dyed wool.
