766. a lively tribal Qashqa'i Persian rug

Old Qashqa'i Persian tribal rug

766. Provenance: Qashqa'i Confederacy of Tribes, Fars Province, south central Iran

Age: Circa 1960

Size: 260 x 160 cm

Condition: Good.

Notes: A classic Qashqa'i tribal rug of this era, using older, tradtional motifs, but with more pronounced, vigorous colouring, including the use of a lot of orange (a more modern favourite among many tribes). Somewhat more unusual is the all-over floral/vegetation theme. The border and the four corner medallions are somewhat classic.
