380. A remarkable antique Qashqa'i Rug

Antique Tribal Qashqa'i Persian Rug

380. Provenance: Qashqa'i Confederacy of Tribes, Fars Province, SW Persia

Age: Circa 1920

Size: 204 x 133 cm

Condition: Good. Change in hues due to natural abrush (variations in dye batches/absorption properties of hand-spun wool).

Notes: I adore the bright, niaive design and colouring of this pure tribal nomadic piece. The border is particularly splendid with a lovely pale indigo and an indigo-saffron-mix speckled green. Also noteworthy is the luscious flame-red in some of the central hooked-diamond medallions. A wonderful work of tribal art.

Price: $1495
