A rare oversize tribal Bakhtiari rug with 9 Persian Water Garden motifs spread across the field. A splendidly ornate weave brings out the vibrancy of this fantastic antique specimen that dates from the early 1900’s.
This lovely detailed and beautiful Silk Tabriz Rug comes from north west of Iran. This is one of the oldest known weaving locations that make a vast sum of diverse carpet types. The art of Tabriz carpets reached their height around the 12thand 16th centuries. The extremely fine knotting of this rug is a vanishing art form and is reserved for kings and rulers. Silk rugs are prized possessions and are passed from one generation to the next.
