Item Ref



Just arrived, a beautiful circa 1900 garden-pattern Bakhtiari rug in excellent condition.
The field contains cypress and pomegranate trees that appear to disappear under the borders and out into infinity. Therefore the weaver has just captured a small part of Paradise and the borders around the field keep 'good' from escaping and prevent 'evil spirits' from entering this sacred space. Wonderful natural colours throughout with a lovely use of green.
Size: 1.90m x 1.40m (6' 3" x 4' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1521


Height = 190 cm (75")
Width = 140 cm (55")
Depth = 0 cm (0")
