Vivacious Kurdish Bidjar lion and bird rug. Tree of life motifs with abundant flowers and foliage, holding flocks of birds and lions with upraised swords, symbols of ancient Persia.
Excellent condition with almost no signs of wear anywhere. Heavy rug with dense wool pile woven onto cotton warp and weft.
Dated 1357 in the Persian calendar which converts to 1979 in the Gregorian calendar.
Multiple vivid colors– including red, blue, rose, gold, and white — on a black field.
This solid carpet could handle high foot traffic in the home. Bidjar carpets, often known as the ‘iron rugs’ due to their dense weave and full pile, can survive decades of intense use.
Price of the runner is $369. Shipping within the U.S. is $43.
