rare antique bakhtiari carpet west persia

Rare Antique Bakhtiari Carpet, West Persia



Item Ref



This rare and fabulous carpet was made by Bakhtiari nomads during the third quarter 19th century. I sold this carpet in the early 1990s into a private UK collection and I acquired it back last week. This carpet is illustrated in my book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' and can be found in the chapter on 'Bakhtiari Tribes'. It is in excellent condition with original brocaded ends and selvedges and is the only one of its type that I know of. A truly wonderful carpet.
Size: 3.20m x 1.68m (10' 6" x 5' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM360
