Description

Stunning, bold geometric Vis rug in excellent condition. (Also spelled Viss and Wiss)

Colors are quite vivid and include tomatoe red, navy blue, turquoise, and olive green.

Some minor signs of use on the wool pile and fringes. Overall shape is excellent.

Side cords are in fine condition.

Out of a European estate. Can be used just as it is now — but the wool would really perk up with a simple wash.

Vis rugs are highly sought after and rare to find on that is nearly a perfect square.

Solid and well made rug that could be placed in any high foot traffic area. Thick wool pile so heavy for its size.

Small blue icons of a mountain sheep (ram, goat, or reindeer) appears in each corner. This is a traditional symbol often woven into the carpets from Vis. Usually the mountain sheep are blue and other colors are less common.

The Vis motif — with its traditional saturated colors and sharp angles — is one of the most distinctive in Iran. Woven in limited numbers in a small area, they are quite special in the oriental carpet trade. They are reminiscent of Caucasian carpets such as the Kazak rugs woven farther to the northwest.

Vis carpets are highly sought after by collectors and not easily found.

Natural wool woven onto natural cotton. 1950s – 1960s. Exact size is 7 ft.  by 6 ft. 9 in.

Vis is a small town located near the city of Golpayegan, Iran — in the district of the same name.

Vis includes an eclectic mix of Kurds, Azeri (Turkish), and Bakhtiari nomadic people. These tribes have influenced the rugs and carpets produced in the city, which carry a dazzling and distinctive geometric tribal motif, typically rendered in bold crimson & blues.

Look for the small blue mountain goat or ram in each corner, another distinctive hallmark. They are similar to the Caucasian and Kazak rug designs so beloved by collectors.

Shipping will be $69 within the continental U.S. Or free pickup with arrangment near the Bay Area or Stockton.
