Antique Doroksh Rug 2.06x1.30m

A very interesting late Nineteenth Century antique rug from Doroksh, Khorassan Province (N.E. Persia/Iran).

The field pattern shows an infinite repeating theme of botehs captured within a boteh border. This boteh field arrangement is highly complex by a weaver of serious skill.

This Doroksh Rug has a wool pile, hand-knotted onto a cotton double-weft foundation. 

The pile is low in places and there is an ancient patch-repair (from a very similar Doroksh Rug) on one end (see image 9 below).

Most interestingly of all: (image 7 below) there is a curious kink in outer guard stripes that has been deliberately woven in...  

2.06x1.30m (6'9"x4'3") £2200
