Bakhtiari

  • $15,000.00


A masterpiece in design and fine weaving from the Bakhtiari tribes of western Persia from the 4th quarter of the 1800s.  The theme of the vase design is also referred to as the "Garden of Paradise" in this beautiful 150-year-old rug.  The weave in this rug is extremely tight and is referred to as "Bibibaft (Grandmother's Weave)".  This is one of the most sought-after designs in the Bakhtiari rugs. The design includes the vase and the birds on the tree branches.  The range of the colors resulting from the use of the natural vegetable dyes results in a beautiful palate of wonderful colors including green, blue, yellow, red. brown, and pink.  Finally, the near square size of this tribal masterpiece makes this rug even more desirable and collectible.
