Description

This is a truly beautiful example of the best of Shekarlu - Qashqa'i weaving. It is important to look at the detail images to really appreciate the wonderful vegetable colours. Made around 1870, the rug is in very good pile albeit the selvedges have been replaced due to wear. The main ivory border is typical 'Shekarlu' as is the indigo-blue field with its stylised trees and flowers - a true garden of Paradise!
Size: 2.16m x 1.70m (7' 1" x 5' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
