349. An irresistable Antique Qashqa'i 'Lion' Rug

Antique Tribal Qashqa'i Tiger Persian Rug

349. Provenance: Qashqa'i tribe, Fars Province, Southern Persia

Size: 222 x 136 cm

Age: Circa 1910

Condition: Very good.

Notes: Fantastic primary colours, and glossy hand-spun wool add to the naive charm of this pure tribal piece. The Qashqa'is have long had a fascination with lions and have depicted them in many forms. This is a wonderful, almost abstract versian. Collectable.

Price: $1495
