542. a spectacular Bakhtiari tribal carpet

Old Bakhtiari Persian Carpet

542. Provenance: Bakhtiari (or Bachtiari) tribe, Western Iran

Size: 310 x 210 cm

Age: Circa 1950

Condition: Very good.

Notes: Stunning strong vibrant colours, particularly the various shades of indigo and the rich madder brown field. I love this tribal take on a Persian garden - highly geometric and stylized - yet perfectly representing their dream of more verdant pastures.
