Object Description

This early Baktiar carpet has a creative drawing and less common overall design where each pattern in the field is cleverly repeated in a different shape and colour combination, framed by a wide ivory border.  The clarity of the drawing is a result of its fine weave in hand-spun wool. The harmonious colours are vegetable dyed which have aged nicely. A decorative piece to complement a wide variety of settings with a good variety of colours, rare in this square shape.

Object History

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.

Object Condition

This handsome Baktiar carpet is in very good practical condition. It has had  some age-related restoration but is complete with its original selvedges on both sides.
