Just magnificent! This superb early example of Shekarlu - Qashqa'i weaving was made during the third quarter of the nineteenth century and depicts a field of narrow vertical columns incorporating small angular 'botehs'. What is particularly attractive is the powerful main border with its diagonal bands in beautiful natural-dye shades of colour. The long brocaded skirts at both ends of the rug are very attractive and virtually complete. This is a highly collectible rug as well as being extremely decorative - washed and ready for floor use.
