This Gabbeh rug was handwoven in Southern Iran during the 20th century.
It features a field of checkered squares composed of a variety of variegated tones of undyed wool in shades of gray, beige, and dark and light brown. The squares are neatly yet imperfectly ordered slightly shifting in scale. Each square is clearly delineated in a dark brown outline and the whole composition is framed by a gray band. Both light and dark handspun wool warps were used which add visual interest to the fringes. The pile is densely woven, making this a plush rug.
The rug is in excellent condition, with little to no signs of wear.
