795. a glorious old Bakhtiari Persian rug

Old Bakhtiari Persian Carpet

795. Provenance: Bakhtiari tribe, south central Persia

Size: 296 x 190 cm

Age: circa 1950

Condition: Very good, with minor colour run (orange) in places.

Notes: This is a vibrant and energetic Bakhtiari tribal-inspired rug. It shows a typically stylized rendition of a floral theme. The wealth of plants (with stalks) surrounding the two medallions are reminiscent of Joshagan carpets. Soft hand-spun wool and bright colours that reflect the Bakhtiaris' tribal origins.
