Charming handwoven modern rug with a rose floral motif on a blue and cream field.
In Persian rugs a similar motif, often found in antique Bakhtiari rugs, is known as Gol Farang — or French flower. The design was inspired by 18th and 19th century French textiles.
Overall condition is excellent for a vintage rug with no signs of wear. Clean and odor free.
The wool pile is medium length and plush. Dyes and colors are very well done with tribal abrash, especially in the indigo blues.
Side cords and cotton fringes are in superb shape.
Contemporary or modern style carpets tend to showcase uncluttered fields and minimalist designs. They often work better with mid century, modern or contemporary styles and decor than the more baroque and intricate floral Persian carpets of yesteryear.
Woven from 100% natural wool and cotton. 1970s.
The weaving techniques appear to be Persian from Hamadan but the imagery is very unusual. Possibly woven in Turkey or one of the former Soviet Republics in the last couple of decades. (I have a second one purchased in the same auction many years ago.)
This is a solid rug that can handle lively foot traffic anywhere in the home.
This rug could work well in a range of decors, including modern and mid-century.
Exact size is 9 ft. 6 ft. by 6 ft. in width.
Shipping will be $55 within continental U.S. Or possible free pickup near Stockton – Sacramento – San Andreas – East Bay Area with prior arrangement.
