330. A startling Antique Kurdish Rug

Antique Kurdish Persian Tribal Rug

330. Provenance: Kurdish tribes, North West Persia

Age: Circa 1890

Size: 280 x 139 cm

Condition: Very good for age. Lowish pile. Some minor loss at ends.

Notes: Really excellent natural colouring make this an exceptionally fine rug. Shades of vibrant indigo, a wonderful indigo/saffron green, rich madder red, and even the 'apricot' orange is soft and vegetal. The hooked diamond motifs throughout are classic Kurdish, but it is always hard to definitively ascribe such NW Persian rugs to specific villages/tribes.
