Antique Bijar Rug, Kurdish Tribes of Bijar, Persian Kurdistan



Item Ref



Amazing golden-yellow and sky-blue border! This most unusual rug with its fabulous colour palette was made by Kurds in the region of Bijar around 1900. It is interesting to note how the central lozenge is not in fact central - but instead, the weaver must have realised she started knotting it too low down and to make up, added a larger floriate motif at the top followed by two octagons containing 8-pointed stars - symbols of spirituality and protection! This is a most charming and spontaneous designed rug and I love the two little quadrupeds in the central blue lozenge.
Size: 1.63m x 1.14m (5' 4" x 3' 9").
