This Qash'qai rug was woven at the turn of the 20th century in Southwest Iran. Finely woven on a wool foundation with brilliant use of the primary colors; red, blue, and yellow with the addition of white serving to magnify their intensity. Five rows of encapsulated botehs (paisley) comprise a well-balanced field alternating in rows of three and four. The balance is also apparent on the diagonal with columns of boteh rendered in red, yellow and white.
This rug is in good structural condition with all sides intact and even wear in the field as pictured.
