Old Qashqa'i Tribal Persian Rug

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

Size: 285 x 204 cm

Age: Circa 1940

Condition: Generally very good, but there are losses, fully secured, at one end

Notes: An unsual and very interesting tribal Qashqa'i rug, with two lines of joined, hook-edged diamond medallions, surrounded by highly stylized floral motifs. A surprisingly geometric rug, in pale colours, that lend it an almost Aztec feel. Woven in soft, lustrous wool on a woolen foundation.
