Old Persian Bidjar Kilim Kelleghi 3.33x1.72m
At The Oriental Rug Merchant we are always on the hunt for the interesting and extraordinary...
This old Persian Bidjar Kilim is from the Kurdish part of Iran, and this Kilim is a real smile maker! Some of the characters are quite cartoon-like! (See pictures below).
Towards the top of the Kilim there is an inscription, part of which are numbers which translate to 1332. This could represent a date, if this is the case, in the Gregorian Calendar that would be roughly 1913 - but of course this might not be the year of manufacture it might be something entirely different.
This flatwoven handmade rug consists of just wool. The Kelleghi proportion is a narrow size carpet whereby the length is twice its width.
For use on a hard floor (wood, tiles, etc) or on carpet Cybergold Underlay is recommended to prevent slippage.
