Eye dazzling vintage tribal geometric rug from the Mazlaghan area in the Hamadan Province of central Iran.
Rare vivid colors for this genre of rugs, including purple and orange! The crimson red field is more common but overall a very rich and cheerful carpet. Inside the central black medallion is a bouquet of roses! There are pomegranates woven into the borders.
The weavers in this locale have been weaving an eye-catching version of this motif going back at least into the 19th century.
Excellent vintage condition with only minor signs of wool pile wear. Side cords and fringes are in fine shape.
Wool woven onto cotton warp and weft. The rug is solid and can be placed in an area of high foot traffic.
Exact size is 6 ft. 9 in. by 4 ft. 3 in. 1960s.
Last photo with Morgan silver dollar shows the backside of the rug.
The overall design looks like a lightning bolt against a night sky, and is one of the most eye catching of all tribal rug designs.
Shipping will be $34 within continental U.S.
