With lustrous, full thick pile and the depiction of four horses, this amazing rug has a deep indigo-blue ground with inscription and dated 1303 in the Islamic calendar, 1885 in the Solar calendar.
All vegetable colours throughout, take a look at one of the close-up photos to see the inner, minor, madder-red border containing colourful stylised chickens all the way round. Charming indeed! The main blue border depicts double-headed sunbirds - guardians of the gates of Paradise. This is an example of a very rare type from the Karaja region of north-western Persia.
