417. A life-enhancing tribal Bachtiari Carpet

Old Bachtiari tribal Persian Carpet

417. Provenance: Bachtiari tribe, Western Persia

Size: 310 x 218 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condition: Very good.

Note: These Bachtiaris are wonderfully-made, with excellent wool and dyestuffs. Their strong, bold, tribal designs don't appeal to everyone, but I think they're great. I love the idea of these nomadic pastoralists, wandering across harsh mountainous and arid environments looking for better grazing for their livestock, dream of beautiful, irrigated gardens, and weave those dreams.

Price: $1325
