antique baluch tribal rug khorassan northeast persia

Antique Baluch Tribal Rug, Khorassan, North-East Persia.



Item Ref



This early Baluch rug from the Khorassan region of north-east Persia was probably made around 1860 - 1870. The beautiful madder-red ground contains an early rendition of the so-called Turkmen 'gurbache' gul highlighted in glorious shades of deep to mid indigo-blue. The border depicts the continuous vine symbolising the eternal cycle of life. Apart from areas of corroded dark-brown wool due to mordant corrosion, the overall condition of the rug is very good for its age.
