Antique Senneh-Malayer Persian Rug

511. Provenance: Kurdish weavers, Senneh/Malayer, Northwest Persia

Size: 198 x 124 cm

Age: Circa 1900

Condition: Overall even low pile. Otherwise good.

Notes: A lovely rendition of the famous 'boteh' motif (precursor to the Paisley teardrop pattern), featurning large, hooked-edged botehs all running in the same direction. Small tribal motifs fill the gaps in the field, and show the tribal roots of the Kurdish weavers. Natural dyes and good, even weave.
