Vintage Kurdish tribal rug woven in central or western Iran. Generous portions of green, which is one of the less common colors in Persian village carpets. The other colors include crimson red, very dark blue (appears almost black in the photos), ivory, white, and splashes of orange.
Wonderful animal motif– with white birds and green and burgundy ungulates grouped around the central medallion. The animals look like llamas although more likely represent sheep. Also, tree-of-life designs on both ends.
The rug is in great condition with very little signs of wear on the wool pile. Side cords and ends are also in superb shape. The carpet is finished differently on each end, which is fairly common with handwoven rugs, especially from the Hamadan region.
This is a very well woven village carpet and can be used in a high foot traffic area of the home.
Kurdish weavers have kept their traditions over the decades, producing high quality tribal pieces that are distinctive, durable, and beautiful.
Wool pile on cotton warp and weft. 1980s. The size is 8 ft. 5 in. by 4 ft. 5 in.
The last photo with coin shows the backside of the carpet.
Shipping will be $43 within the continental U.S.
