4'9" x 7'2" Antique Halvai Bidjar Rug, Circa 1895



Finely woven Bidjar rugs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries are sometimes referred to as "Halvai" Bidjar rugs. This piece features a very distintive central medallion with a speckled Quatrefoil motif on a navy ground that has yellow panels each containing a flower. The abrashed red field is decorated with the classical Herati design. Navy corner spandrels and a denim blue Turtle border frame the field. The articulation of the corner spandrels and the plain sky blue band separating the field from the borders suggest this Bidjar was woven in a specific workshop.
