Description
Ghasschai - Rug - 170 cm - 130 cm
Wool on cotton - Iran - Late 19th century

A prime example of pre-1900 tribal Qashqai handmade wool rug measuring 170 x 130cm (5.6' x 4.3'). Floral open field in dark blue background with the similarly decorated geometric borders. This rug was professionally cleaned and washed, little faded and has localised wear commensurate with the usage and age but still an attractive piece.

This rug was exported from Iran before 2015.
