This handwoven Gabbeh was woven in Southern Iran during the 21st century.
It features two Qash'qai nomads in traditional 20th century clothing along with their horses on a burgundy field. The man wears a hat and holds a rifle and the woman wears a headscarf. Two birds can be found on the left-hand side which likely have been used to indicate the man and woman are a couple. The whole is framed by a polychrome border of c scrolls. The pile is densely woven, making this a plush rug.
The condition is excellent, with no signs of wear.
