This Baluch rug was woven during the early 20th century.
A wonderful hybrid, this rug is constructed like a Baluch with a traditional Baluch color palette but features patterning more common in nearby Afshar production. The field features an all-over abstraction of the classic Herati design rendered in blues, reds, purples, coral, and ivory on an oxidized brown ground. The major and minor borders are very graphic as well and it is here where colors shine most. Some of the original kilim ends remain intact.
Has only been professionally cleaned but is otherwise in worn, as-found condition. Has a low pile and dense handle.
