Object Description

This 19th century Bidjar carpet has a rare ivory field complementing the creative overall drawing. Each design in the field is cleverly repeated in a different shape and colour combination, framed by a wide terracotta border. It has a remarkable quality which explains the clarity of the drawing.

An elegant example that would complement a wide variety of settings.

Object History

Antique Bidjar carpets from north west Persia are famed amongst Persian tribal village rugs for the quality of their tight precise weaves and often dazzling interaction of their designs and colours.

Bidjar is situated in a corridor between the borders of Persia, Anatolia and the Caucasus so has a weaving tradition that encompasses a varied mix of cultural influences. This can be seen in the broad range of styles and patterns in Bidjar carpets which makes them unique and challenging in trying to distinguish them from rugs from other regions. 

They are diverse and versatile pieces that would complement classic and contemporary settings alike.

Object Condition

It is in very good condition, still retaining its original fringes and borders on all four sides.
