Regular price $2,850.00 Sale

This Shekarlu rug was woven at the turn of the 20th century in Southwest Iran. The Shekarlu are a Lori-speaking tribe of the Qashqa'i Confederacy.

It features a spectacular all-over field chock full of latch hooked polygons, rosettes, serrated combs, and various types of animals and protection symbols. Beautifully layered with haphazard spontaneity and free-flowing shifts in scale and rhythm yet still cohesive and engaging like well-improvised Jazz. It features captivating reds, soft blues, yellows, purplish-brown and bright ivory on a rare greenish-blue ground. The whole is framed by a stark white border characteristic of the type and which brightens the composition. 

This rug is in very good condition with the original end kilims still intact. The ends showcase (or rather, showoff) a well-executed weft float technique and the beautiful tones used.
