This Bidjar was handwoven during the late 19th Century (1875-1900) in Northwest Iran.
It features an all-over herati patterned field in blues, reds, coral, and gold on a midnight blue backdrop. This bidjar lives up to its reputation as the "Iron Rug of Persia" with dense tightly packed construction which makes for a heavy and hard-wearing rug. The sparkling main border is composed of yellow and icy blue palmettes on a lacquer red ground which is flanked by minor borders of green and red rinceau on bright white.
In good condition. The pile is low and dense with a sturdy handle.
