682. an enigmatic antique Qashqa'i tribal rug

Antique Tribal Qashqa'i Persian Rug

682. Provenance:   Qashqa'i Confederacy of Tribes, Fars Province, southern Persia

Size: 230 x 175 cm

Age: Circa 1910

Condition: Pretty good considering its high age, but it does have areas of wear. There is also a small hole and a tear, both of which will be repaired/secured, included in the below price.

Notes:  Classically Qashqa'i in terms of colour and feel, repleat with tribal motifs and stylized flowerheads, botehs, and even human-like figures. However this rug also bears some resemblances to Afshar pieces (a common situation as they share neighbouring territories) - particularly in the borders. Awesome natural dyes throughout.
