4’ 5” x 9’ 3” Late 19th century Persian Bidjar in a medallion geometric pattern. The rug has an open field design set on a rich carnelian red background with the central medallion in navy blue with a Herati pattern. A symmetric small medallion with a fantastic design set in a robin’s egg blue background with designs in pink, yellow, and red add to the uniqueness of the design. The corner spandrels have the same color palette and design as the central medallion. The field is beautifully framed with an abrash robin’s egg blue border with designs in green, yellow, pink. The Bidjar rugs are renowned for their very tight, high knot count, great designs and finally wonderful colors and this rug is no exception. They are so tightly woven that they are often referred to as “The Iron Rugs of Persia”!
