Description

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

Excellent overall condition with only minor signs of wear on the wool pile.

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

A geometric rug woven with traditional Qashqai flowers and vases as well as birds and deer.

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 5 ft. by 3 ft. 5 in. 1970s.

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 $23 within the continental U.S. Or free pickup in Tucson.
