Cheerful vintage floral Hamadan village rug in good overall condition.
Out of a European estate. The rug was professionally washed in California, but a few small faint spots did not come out in the wash (see last photo). Some minor scattered wear but the rug is very solid overall. No holes, odors, or weak spots.
This is a mid 20th century Persian Kabutar Ahangh carpet (also spelled Kabud Rahang and Kabutarhang).
Kabutar Ahangh is in the northeast of Hamadan. The weaving from that area is unusual because the weavers produce larger sizes not typically seen in the Hamadan region.
This carpet shows the traditional small medallion with detached floral sprays on an ivory field. Most of these rugs use red as the primary field color and ivory or cream is much less common.
The white cream field color is woven from soft thick un-dyed sheep’s wool.
The motif is related to the American Sarouk design from the early 20th century.
Exact size is 10 ft. 6 in. by 8 ft. Natural wool on natural cotton. 1950s.
The Hamedan District is in north central Iran and produces a rich tapestry of rugs and carpets from several hundred villages. Most of these village rugs, typically woven in a home, are rendered as runners and small rugs. It’s more challenging to find larger village pieces in this size range.
