Semi Antique Red Bidjar Persian Area Rug Wool Circa 1930
Bijar rugs are mainly woven in the town of Bijar and its surrounding villages. Bijar is located in the province of Kurdistan in the northwest of Iran. Bijar rugs are mostly considered village rugs because whether woven in the town of Bijar itself or its surrounding villages, they are woven inside houses rather than workshops. Bijar carpets are usually identified by their weave, rather than the design since many various designs were used. Bijar weavers beat the weft strands with a hammer against the rows of knot repeatedly until the weave becomes extremely compact. As a result, Bijar rugs are dense, heavy, and exceptionally durable.
A visually extremely dynamic west Persian town scatter with a red field supporting a densely nested and flame-edged oval medallion accented in powder blue and centered on a red, pendanted octogramme, and en suite corners detailed in teal blue. Pendants and half-pendants with serpentine turn-backs enhance the major elements. Blue border with reversing palmettes that may or may not resemble turtles. Solid, compact weave. Good condition.
