Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery") Antique Persian Bakshaish rugs were virtually never woven in runner dimensions and highly treasured by connoisseurs. This amazingly preserved 19th-century runner is ennobled by resplendent tonalities, offering a winsome, overscale version of the fabled Herati pattern. The narrow field exudes the ambiance of electrifying lights against a midnight sky. This all-natural palette includes hues such as a brilliant yellow from precious saffron dyestuff, jadeite green, and evocative accents of graduated lilac tonalities. Serrated frond and rosette motifs kineticise the vermillion border have personalized combinations of color where no two are the same, assuring an uplifting, energetic stroll along the length of this piece. Exceptional high-mountain wool quality gives these saturated colors a tremendous glow. Extraordinarily retaining heavy pile, it would effortlessly handle a heavily trafficked hallway.
