$395.00

Traditional Qashqai animals — goats with wildly extended blue tongues! Or blue beards?

In stock

Description

Cheerful vintage tribal rug from the Zagros Mountains of Southwest Iran.

Good overall condition with even wear on the wool pile and some dye pickup in the border.

Photos show areas of wear and slight dye diffusion — probably from a wash.

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

A geometric rug woven with traditional Qashqai animals — goats with wildly extended blue tongues! Or perhaps blue beards!

Woven from 100% natural wool — including the warp and weft. This is typical of many Qashqai rug weavings.

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

The exact size is 7 ft. 1 in. by 4 ft. 8 in. 1960s.

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. Or possibly arranged pickup in Northern California.
