The wonderful soft colour palette in this Ali Mirza'i Baluch rug of madder-red and indigo-blue is subtle and beautiful at the same time. The very slight corrosion to the dark-brown dye within the field gives the whole rug a 3-dimensional feel. It is in excellent condition and retains its fabulous kilim skirts at each end.
Size: 1.88m x 1.05m (6' 2" x 3' 5").

Beautiful natural shades of indigo-blue and madder-red dominate this lovely early Baluch. The white flowers in the indigo-blue field represent the nectar-blossom and the main border design powerfully frames the field. Typical for early Baluch rugs is the corrosive brown-dye, seen particularly around the ivory minor borders, caused by iron-mordanting of the wool.
Size: 2.44m x 1.00m (8' 0" x 3' 3").

The fabulous colours in this 19th century Mahdad Khani Baluch glow like oil floating on water!
I just love the juxtaposition of madder-red, deep indigo-blue and my favourite sky-blue.
The rug has superb shiny wool, vegetable colours and is in very good condition.

A unique and rare little Baluch rug in excellent condition and with an unusual colour palette - mainly having an aubergine field. Made around 1870-1880, I haven't come across a Baluch like this before. It really is a beautiful rug.

This magnificent large Baluch tribal rug has an overall design of stylised flowers in wonderful natural colours. The rug was found in a grubby condition hanging on a wall, and therefore has been preserved, due to its near-mint condition. It even retains its complete flat-woven skirts at each end - quite remarkable. Now washed, the wool is soft and lustrous and the rug is ready for an inviting floor!
Size: 2.50m x 1.35m (8' 3" x 4' 5").

The dark-brown oxidised field colour creates an overall lattice design in a 3-dimensional effect as can be seen in the close-up images. I love the tiny quadrupeds within the ivory-coloured nectar-blossom flowers. If you look closely, you will see how the weaver has subtly and very cleverly, depicted males and females, symbolising the creation of life in Paradise. The knotted-pile skirts are stunning. A very handsome rug of the Baluch nomads of Khorassan Province made circa 1880.

The madder-red ground colour on this elegant Baluch tribal rug glows beautifully, to the point that photographs don't do it any justice! The intricate field of interlinking symbols are superbly drawn and the main border contains the nectar blossom or 'mina khani' pattern. Quite probably made by the Ali Mirza'i tribe circa 1900, the rug is in excellent condition.

Wonderful vegetable colours throughout this beautiful rug from the khorassan Baluch made circa 1880. I love the indigo-blue field and the red main border comprising of the 'hashie anguri' or grape-vine design, as well as the stylised cockerels in the blue field symbolising the harbinger of the day and dispeller of the night.

In mint condition with only very slight brown-dye corrosion, this is a very beautiful rug of the Baluch tribes of Khorassan, north-east Persia, made around 1900. I particularly like the gorgeous, saturated madder-red throughout and the field of stylised flowers with small stylised 'trees' squeezed in along each vertical side of the field design. Another lovely touch to the rug is the sky-blue colour which outlines each of the flowers - a truly superb combination with the madder-red.

Amongst my favourite Baluch rugs are those with a glowing vegetable indigo-blue field and madder-red main border. Sadly, they are few and far between. But here, just acquired, is such a fabulous example showing the blues and reds that make Baluch rugs the very best of type.
This rug from around 1880 is in excellent pile - soft, lustrous, glossy wool and a field rendition of the 'mina khani' or nectar blossom design - famous in the Baluch weavings of Khorassan, north-east Persia. The original brocaded skirts remain intact at both ends.
Size: 1.84m x 0.91m (6' x 3').

Magnificent natural colours abound in this rare and superb rug of the Baluch nomads of north-east Persia, made around 1870. The natural camel-hair field contains what appear to be stylised leaves in shades of vegetable aubergine, turquoise, light and mid indigo-blues. The main border is stunning with its light-blue continuous vine running all the way round on a glowing madder-red background colour. The only damage on the rug is in the two narrow bands of dark-brown soumack weave in both skirts, where the dark-brown dye has corroded due to the mordant effect. The lower skirt has the worst of the damage and I have had the bands sewn onto a backing cloth to protect from any further damage rather than remove the skirts completely which would, in my mind, amount to sacrilege! The rug is such a superb example of its type that I feel it should be placed in a very quiet room or hung on a wall - a great way to admire such a fabulous piece.
Size: 2.03m x 1.05m (6' 8" x 3' 5").
