Out of stock


Fabulous old tribal rug from the Zagros Mountains of Southwest Iran.

Very good overall condition with minor wear across the wool pile. No holes or weak spots.

Rich colors with a black field and a burnt orange interior. Many tribal icons including tree-of-life elements, goats, rams, peacocks, birds, chickens and small abstract figures. A geometric rug woven with traditional Qashqai medallions at the center and corners.

This Qashqai carpet will work in a high foot traffic area of the home.

Burnt orange, gold, white, and black, are the primary colors.

Woven from 100% natural wool — including the warp and weft.

Last photo with Morgan silver dollar displays the back of the rug.

The exact size is 9 ft. 10 in. by 7 ft. 1940s – 1950s.

The Qashqai are a confederation of 5 distinct tribal groups who banded together in a political alliance in the 19th century. Another confederation — the Khamseh (number 5 in Arabic) — formed in the 19th century as a counterbalance to the Qashqai. The rugs of all of these tribes are quite similar in many respects.

Shipping will be $43 within the continental U.S. (Arranging free pickup is also an option.)
