Bakhtiari 'Khan' Rug, Bakhtiari Tribes, The Chahar Mahal, Western Persia.



Item Ref



This rug can only be described as magnificent.
Made for a Bakhtiari Khan around 1880, the rug is very finely knotted indicating that it was given to the most experienced weaver within the tribe. The typical Bakhtiari compartmentalised design is beautifully drawn - not busy as seen in later examples of village Bakhtiari work.
The vegetable colours too are just stunning with gorgeous shades of golden yellow and rich green combined with madder-red and indigo-blue.
When it was made, the pile was cut short to accentuate the clarity of design and today, the overall condition is very good, evenly-low pile throughout.
Size: 1.68m x 1.37m (5' 6" x 4' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
