Antique Bakhtiar Rug 2.05x1.46m
This antique Persian Bakhtiar Rug is an outstanding example.
Made circa 1900 probably in the vicinity of the village of Chahal Shotur, this Persian Bakhtar has a super-fine weave - these super-fine ones are sometimes known as "Bibibaff" (grandmother's weave) due to the fineness of the knotting. The weave of this example is an extremely fine single weft construction (like the fineness of an excellent Senneh). The pile is wool knotted onto a cotton foundation.
The formal medallion design shows influence from the styles produced in Isfahan, which lies nearby, north-east of the Bakhtiar villages.
The medallion is especially eye-catching and acts as a focal point.
The condition of this antique Persian Bakhtiar rug is excellent, with very light wear commensurate with age. The ends and sides are secure; it is clean and ready for immediate use/display.
