392. A brilliant antique Khamseh tribal Persian

Antique Khamseh Confederacy tribal Persian Rug

392. Provenance: Khamseh Confederacy, Southern Persia

Size: 164 x 109 cm

Age: Circa 1900

Condition: Very good for age.

Notes: Pure tribal art - now a lost artform. Tight weaving and detailed work make this rendition of their classic 'chicken' rug particularly charming. All natural dyes (many of them), with three serrated linked medallions highlighted in white, and a wonderful 'crab' main border. All hand-spun wool construction.
