Description

Dated 1334 in the Islamic calendar (1916 in the solar calendar), this magnificent rug was probably made by a sub-tribe of the Qashqa'i Confederacy - possibly the Bolvardi or even a Luri tribe? It is in excellent pile all over and is complete with its additional skirts at each end. The indigo-blue field contains three large 'birds-heads' lozenges incorporating the 'scorpion' symbol within and the field is scattered with various symbols and plants. What is particularly attractive, is the stunning use of green in the central lozenge. This is a most attractive early 20th century piece with natural colours - probably the last vestiges of true nomadic art.
PS: For US buyers, please note that this rug is easily available without any embargo issues.
Size: 2.24m x 1.23m (7' 4" x 4' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
