Description

A wonderful oversized antique Bakshaish carpet with a very unusual open natural ground colour. A beautiful medalliion with trees either side and a stunning wide border. A fantastic carpet for a grand dining or living room.  Bakshaish is a region very near to Heriz in the north-west of Persia, they tended to be softer in colour and have a geometric design of leaves and birds.
Among the oversized carpets made in Persia, antique Bakshaish  carpets are in a class by themselves. In essence, antique Bakshaish carpets adapt the style and feeling of the finest smaller village or tribal rugs to the the scale of room-size pieces. The drawing of Bakshaish rugs and carpets is always bold, geometric, dynamic, and abstract.
Bakshaish rugs may utilize medallion or allover designs descended from classical antique rugs, but they translate such models into a much more abstract and expressive idiom reminiscent of Caucasian village rugs like Kazaks. Sometimes, like village pieces, they make use of scattered space-fillers; alternatively they may apply a principle of open space to allow the effects of the drawing to stand out graphically.
The antique Persian Bakshaish rugs are also admired for their lustrous wool and rich, transparent color, again in the tradition of the best tribal pieces. Bakshaish rugs were produced in North Iran, not far from the Caucasus, which helps to account for the qualities they share with the rugs of that region.
One of the photographs is it residing in a stunning country home under a dining table, where it lived for 50 years or more.  We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire the UK & Europe by appointment.
