Bakhtiari rug handwoven in South Iran during the second quarter of the 20th century. 

This rug is composed of a large scale garden design, with each lozenge containing a motif of plants, flowers, or fountains. The color palette is made up of earthy reds, yellows, browns, blues, and ivories. The two borders are large scale, with the main border showcasing a beautiful example of the serrated leaf and calyx design. The minor border is composed of a complex floral meander. 

In fair condition, with some wear throughout. The width of the rug was reduced at some point and the areas where the pile has worn were repainted.  Foundation is strong and intact. Low pile, with an airy handle.
