560. a fetching old Shiraz Persian rug

Old Shiraz Persian tribal rug

560. Provenance: Shiraz, Fars Province, Iran

Size: 200 x 135 cm

Age: Circa 1940

Condition: Good, with high rich pile.

Notes: A lovely design with tree-like stylized motifs, but what stands out is the fantastic green field, which uses natural dyes and is alive with abrush - the natural variation in colour tone, because of changes in dye batches and the varying density of the handspun wool. A beauty.
