This kilim was handwoven in Northern Iran in the 21st century.
It features four vertical columns of hourglass shapes. A column of navy on a red ground and yellow on an ivory ground is flanked on both sides by red hourglass shapes on a yellow ground which is horizontally connected by a thin strip of yellow on both the top and bottom. The whole is framed by a solid green border.
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 "4154 Gilim Mashiri N" 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.
