13.5 x 18.7 Antique Bakshaish Carpet With Shrub Design, Heriz District, Northwest Persia, Circa 1890

An over size antique Bakshaish carpet from the Heriz district in northwest Persia. This exceptional antique Bakshaish carpet features a Shrub design on an ivory field. A sky blue leaf and flowerhead border frames the field.

A wide range of colors distinguishes this Bakshaish carpet, including yellow, green, salmon, ivory, sky blue and brown.

Although ostensibly similar to the Bid Majnun design of Cypress and Willow trees seen in northwest Persian carpets from both the Bidjar area in Kurdistan Province and the Heriz area in Azerbaijan, the Shrub design featured in this Bakshaish carpet is much less common.
