8' 11” x 11’ 10” A beautiful room-size Persian Bidjar (Bijar) from the early 1900s. This Bidjar rug has an allover “Herati” design set in a dark blue field color with design accents in cream, blue, pink, and red. The primary border is in rust color with geometric designs in yellow, pink, blue, and cream. The Bidjar rugs are sometimes referred to as “the Persian iron” rugs because of their tight weave and they often weigh two to three times as much as similar size rugs from other regions.
