Antique Qashqa'i Rug, Shekarlu Sub-Tribe, Fars Province, South-West Persia.



Item Ref



Here we have a small, rare-size rug of the Shekarlu sub-tribe (taifeh) within the Qshqa'i Confederacy, made around 1870-1880. The main border is typically Shekarlu but the diagonal bands of 'birds-heads' symbols is unusual. All the colours are beautifully saturated from natural dyes and the wool is soft and lustrous. The rug retains the remains of its brocaded skirts at each end and overall, it is in good pile and very good condition. As with all my stock, this beautiful little rug has been washed and any minor restoration carried out where neccessary.
Size: 1.90m x 1.30m (6' 3" x 4; 3").
