BM/GM

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").

Just very occasionally, a fantastic Baluch rug comes my way - and it is a rare occurrence these days!
This is such a Baluch. This is a wonderful example of the best type where the weaver has used fabulous dark and sky indigo-blues and that highly desirable glowing tomato madder-red. Made around the mid 19th century, the weaver originally planned to use ivory for the inner minor border but then changed her mind and used a light sky-blue colour instead. Charming! Just look at the main border with its rendition of the 'hashie anguri' or grape-vine - powerful and beautifully drawn. To start and complete the rug, the weaver has intricately woven brocaded skirts - another highly desirable and collectable feature in the best of 19th century Baluch rugs.
I love this rug!

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").

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!

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.
