921. a scintillating antique Qasqa'i Persian rug

Antique Qashqa'i tribal Persian rug

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

Size: 186cm x 117cm

Age: Circa 1910

Condition: Good with just moderate signs of age. Minor loss at ends.

Notes: A typically warm, and colourful antique tribal piece from Qashqa'i weavers. The intricasy and depth of design is astonishing, with an absolute wealth of tibal detail - in this case largely floral-inspired. The colours are natural dyes, and the overall impressioin is one of warmth and intimacy. Pure tribal, and with an all-handspun-wool construction.
