Object Description

A large elongated medallion design in the main field on this attractive antique Baktiari rug, this design is derived from early rug patterns produced in the 16th and 17th century.  Amazing natural dyes, with soft pale blues, greens, and reds.  The ivory centre lifts the whole palette and showcases the intricate floral designs. We have washed this rug and the colours are vibrant yet muted due to the age of this piece.  Woven around 1910-1915 the condition is very good with the ends secure and a sturdy wool pile height.

Make an appointment to visit our barn showroom or you at home soon.  We would love to help you and show you this rug up close.  Thank you.
