This kilim was handwoven in Northern Iran in the 21st century.
It features a central ivory ground polygon filled with three large vegetal motifs on a red field. Three of the corner feature a sitting stag and the final corner features what is likely the Mashiri company logo. It is framed by a border of triangles that connect the vertical but are spaced on the top and bottom.
This kilim comes from a batch of hearty kilims that were likely intended as samples for larger-scale production. Many of the rugs contain writing in Farsi that refers to pattern numbers and the words "Gilim" (Kilim) or "Farsh" (Carpet) and then "Mashiri" which is likely the producer. This particular kilim has "Gilim Shamri MH" written in Farsi.
In excellent condition, with limited signs of wear. Ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic, and very hard-wearing for a flatweave.
