Antique Bakhshaysh Carpet 352x300cm
Exquisite antique Bakhshaysh carpet from Northwest of Iran. Bakhshaysh production over the years has been much lower compared to other parts of the Heriz area. Apart from their attractive design, they are invariably in good sizes. Maybe the reason for their scarcity is that they mainly wove to order for specific unusual size requests. This ground colour is scarce, especially from this area. The simple yet effective all over design of flower heads in interconnecting lozenges flanked with four leaves works, very well here. The field design is continued in stylised flower heads, connected with leaves on a mellow yellow border framed with beautiful light blue guard borders. The overall effect is decorative and tasteful.
Size: 352cm x 300cm / 11'6"ft. x 9'10"ft.
