A superb example of a Persian Bakhtiari rug of the ?garden? design, Western Persia
2nd half 19th century
This is one of the earliest forms of this design, several generations earlier than most that are seen on the market
The clear and simple drawing in each compartment is an indication of age, in later examples the design degenerates
The border design is of particular note; this is normally associated with Shirvan rugs from the Eastern Caucasus
This excellent rug has wonderful colour that is all derived from natural sources.
The condition is excellent with even wear and low pile.
The rug has been hand washed and is ready for use or display.
Size: 6ft 6in x 3ft 11in. (198 x 119cm)
