Antique Baktiar carpets from west Persia have one of the most intriguing and distinct styles of any antique Persian rug, boasting a fascinating historical heritage and character. They are one of the few types of Persian rugs that encompass both nomadic tribal and antique rug designs and are notable for their high wool quality and rich colours.
This antique Baktiar, rare in this squarish format, has an artisic overall pattern where each drawing in the central field is cleverly repeated in a different shape and vegetable-dyed colour combination, framed by several borders. The design proportion is generous in relation to its size. A stylish rug to blend in a variety of settings.
