A vibrant triabl Qashqai rug from the Shiraz region of southwest Iran.
A pictorial rug with double languishing princesses, both staring into a burning candle, with butterflies hovering nearby, all on a crimson field.
Overall condition is excellent with almost no signs of wear.
The side cords and fringes are in great condition.
Rugs depicting romantic scenes, wine drinking, music festivities, and brokenhearted princesses are often known as ‘Omar Khayyam’ rugs. Generally, these are small mat-sized textiles but they also come in larger sizes such as this carpet.
As is typical in Qashqai rug weaving, the entire rug, including warp threads and fringe, is composed of natural wool.
The exact size is 8 ft. by 5 ft.
This is a well woven heavy rug that could be used in a high foot traffic area of the home. No holes, thin spots, or weak areas, etc. Thick and plush natural wool.
Last photo with Morgan silver dollar shows the backside of this tribal carpet.
Shipping will be $43 within the continental U.S. Or free pickup in Tucson.
