antique bakhtiari tribal rug the chahar mahal western persia

Antique Bakhtiari Tribal Rug, The Chahar Mahal, Western Persia.



Item Ref



This is a true example of pure nomadic work by Bakhtiari nomads in the Chahar Mahal region of western Persia. The wool is soft and lustrous and the overall condition is excellent bar some very minor wear in the top main border and a few old repairs in the field - completely invisible on the surface. The indigo-blue field appears to contain palmettes - freely drawn with spontaneity of design and surrounding the field, a powerful ivory border depicting stylised fish swimming around a water lily. I love the whole appearance of this wonderful rug with its slightly wider ivory border on the left side! Charming.
Size: 2.13m x 1.27m (7' 0" x 4' 2").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: MAC48
