7.9 x 10.10 Antique Bidjar Carpet With Deerhead Border, Circa 1895
7.9 x 10.10 Antique Bidjar Carpet With Herati Design Field and Deerhead Border, Circa 1895
This antique Bidjar carpet has two distinctive features. The weave has a tapestry-like quality to it. Although it is not particularly finely woven, I suspect a certain workshop produced rugs and carpets with a similar weave because it is very distinctive. The carpet features the classical “Herati” design on a navy blue field and the famous deerhead border with magnificent color quality.
