Classic Persian carpet design of the late 19th century frequently utilizes a central medallion drawn within a cartouche-shaped field which allows for elongated corner-pieces. This elegant Bidjar carpet uses this general design formula but in a much more geometric articulation than is normally seen. The contours of both the medallion and field are noticeably stepped. Color is equally bold and saturated while the vegetal ornament, particularly of the corners, interestingly retains the curvilinear drawing of earlier Kurdish prototypes of the 18th century.
