"Old Persian Bakhtiar Rug, 142 Cm X 223 Cm, Hand Knotted, Iran, Late 19th Century, Early 20th Century"
This very beautiful old Bakthiar is 142 cm wide, 223 cm long, is in very good condition and has very fresh and vibrant colors.
From the end of the 19th century, see the very beginning of the 20th century, this carpet originates from the region of Chahar Mahal (Shotour) in Iran. It is a Bakthiar with medallions in the shape of contiguous diamonds, very different from the usual structures in squares or rectangles spreading over the entire field that we regularly find or from large medallions like Tafresh.
The diamonds are decorated with cypresses, birds and mainly roses.
The field is composed of twelve diamonds, colored and tied with a very large application of symmetry.
This type of Bakthiar carpet is not the most common, it remains a so-called nomadic style of carpet, using colors specific to their repertoire.
This carpet is particularly neat in its decoration and it presents a certain transition between the nomadic carpet and the carpet of the cities.
These rugs are resistant knotted with very high quality wools from the mountains.
Despite their name and unlike different types of rugs, the Bakthiar are not knotted by members of the Bakthiar tribe, the Bakhtiaris, but by another population that is now sedentary.
The region of Chahar Mahal produces the Bakthiar carpet but also less known the Yalame, more recent in manufacture but of very good reputation. Very slight wear due to its good age, the double selvedges are impeccable, it is a finely tight carpet, almost a century old and of very good quality.
This rug has been professionally cleaned and environmentally friendly.
