Produced in North Iran, Bakshaish rugs are widely recognized for their cultural influences. They are particularly known for their asymmetrical designs. In a Bakshaish rug, no motifs are shown in the same way twice. This February, a 19th-century Bakshaish antique rug will come to auction with Freeman’s. The available carpet has an intricate blue and red inner border with a geometric center.
A Venetian Arte Povera fall-front secretary in the Baroque style is highlighted as well. Though the Baroque style grew from Italy, its influence and popularity swiftly spread across Europe in the early 18th century. Baroque furniture is best known for its sense of motion with intricate details. A Louis XV gilt tole mirror, an Italian giltwood sofa in the Rococo style, and a 1900 sculpture by Louis-Ernest Barrias will be highlighted as well.
