This kilim was handwoven in Northern Iran in the 21st century.
It features columns of polychrome spade-like or vegetal forms (perhaps mushrooms) on yellow and green ground tones delineated by thick red lines. The likely unintentional shift in scale adds visual interest and personality to the piece.
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 "4028 B Y Gilim Mashiri" 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.
