Description

Size: 5ft 10in x 3ft 10in (177 x 118cm).
This rug is an outstanding example of nomadic tribal weaving by the Qashqai tribe of South West Persia.
Circa 1870.
The rug is of the two linked medallion format, the ivory ground medallions contain the emblem of the Qashqai tribe. The field is dark indigo blue and every part of it is covered with tribal elements such as flowers, stars and birds; of particular note are the two beautiful peacocks either side of the center. Each side of the field is flanked with a totemic tree.
The ivory ground spandrels (corners) are filled with flowers, shrubs and boteh. The rug is surrounded by two borders one ivory and the other a rare green border, both containing a linked leaf and flower design.
Both ends of the rug retain the original checkerboard finish.
The rug is in excellent condition with a fine weave and medium low pile. This is a fine and light weight rug. The rug has fine red wefts and ivory and brown hand spun wool warps. There are a few scattered old repairs that are almost impossible to detect.
The rug is suitable for light domestic use but would make a truly outstanding wall hanging.
The rug has been hand washed and is ready for use or display.
