Description

Wonderful Persian garden panel rug motif with birds, stylized flowers, garden scenes, and stately cypress trees.

This is the traditional version of the garden rug with tile windows, elegant borders, and repeating rustic scenes of nature and floral splendor.

Dyes are quite pleasing. Out of a European estate.

The rug is excellent condition! Only minor signs of wear on the wool pile.

Impressive use of multiple design elements and bold colors. Solidly woven.

This was woven by a Bakhtiari tribal weaver in the Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province of western Iran.

Side cords and fringes are in fine shape.

Very solid and well crafted rug that can be used in a high foot traffic area or near an entrance.

Pleasing well balanced colors including blue, white, yellow, brick red, green, rose, black, ivory, and salmon.

The garden panel motif is also known as a ‘khesti’ motif, and dates back several centuries in Iran. The Bakhtiari are masters of the design, but it is also woven by the Luri and the Qashqai, and occasionally in the cities of Qom and Tabriz.

Exact size is 10 ft. by 5 ft. 7 in. Wool pile on cotton warp. 1960s. Out of a European Estate.

Last photo with Morgan silver dollar shows the backside of the carpet.

The Bakhtiari tribe, numbering 800,000, inhabit an area of 67,000 sq. km that straddles the central Zagros Mountains in Iran. Although only about a third of the tribe is nomadic (the rest are settled agriculturists), the nomads embody the Bakhtiari cultural ideals.
