A dazzling assortment of dramatically softened, naturally dyed colors brings a harmonious vitality to this well-crafted room size Bakshaish rug. A tour-de-force display of intentional abrash striation gives the field tremendous depth as it shifts through azure, slate and sky blue. Offering the uncommonly spirited weaving for which this highly prized Persian village style is known, its dexterous weavers further demonstrated their enlivening artistry through the use of carefully integrated traditional motifs, including the beloved Herati pattern of the field and a succession of delightfully artful border cartouches. A treasure in every respect, this collectible carpet remains in exceedingly good floor condition.
