Old vintage Persian tribal rug with a traditional village motif, including a medallion and tree-of-life designs.
Overall condition is excellent with a little minor wear on the wool pile.
The color change from black to bands of gray are part of the original design; it’s not fading or stains, etc. The technique is known as abrash, and the weaver uses different but similar colored wools to create a painterly effect.
Very solid carpet. Fringes and side cords are in excellent shape.
The carpet was handwoven in the Hamadan district, and more specifically, in a village in Tuyserkan County.
Beautiful colors including brick red and mint green as well as black, ivory and gray.
Last photo with Morgan silver dollar shows the back of the rug.
Natural wool pile on cotton warp. 1950s.
Exact size is 6 ft. 5 in. by 3 ft. 8 in.
Shipping will be $34 within continental U.S. Or free pickup in Tucson, AZ.
