Late 19th Century
An evocative visual tapestry of luxuriant color imbues this exquisite antique Bijar runner with an immersive quality. A flowing aesthetic defines the expressive flowering "Art Nouveau" vase pattern set into an indigo reserve, where their exquisite naturally dyed palette is set alight by vivacious color shifts. The field essentially combines both medallion and allover formats with the ambitious vase motif expanding infinitely, balancing the visual drama to stunning effect. The panoply of lush tropical and jewel tones are meant to set a passageway alight, introducing arresting values of coral, carnelian, guava, sapphire, and nephrite that dazzle equally in modern or traditional decors. Mid-scale winged escutcheons connect garlands on a luminous pale golden ground. With the Bijar weave known as "The Iron Rug of Persia," this singular piece happily offers fine condition with good pile and a heavy-duty foundation.
