420. A resplendent tribal Bachtiari 'garden' carpet

Old Bachtiari tribal Persian Carpet

420. Provenance: Bachtiari tribe, Western Persia

Size: 349 x 280 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condition: Very good.

Notes: These Bachtiaris, despite being nominally 'floral', are pure tribals. The designs are naive and charming, and strive to replicate the lush abundance of royal Persian gardens - places that must seem like paradise to pastoral nomads, moving with their tents and livestock across some of the harshest, semi-arid environments of Persia/Iran. The wool and dye (natural) qualities in these rugs are first-rate.
