D0264: Antique Persian Bakhtiari-Farahan Design, 45″ x 65″
Age: late 19th Century
Ethnic Origin: Nomadic, Tribal, Bakhtiari tribe from eastern Iran
Condition/Description:: Very good with crisp, vegetable dyes, and gorgeous celedon blues, and pistachio greens that are only found in old, antique rugs. The deep, deep almost black indigo is a difficult color to achieve and only the master dyers know how to get this almost black indigo to stay and NOT fade as a fugitive dye which tends to fade to a grayish color. It is truly the ‘best of the breed’.
Remarks: The Bakhtiari tribe is a semi-nomadic tribe in eastern Persia who winter in the southern part of Iran and summer in the northern mountains of Iran. The wool to weave these rugs have the benefit of the mountain waters and spring and the sheep wool which is rich in lanolin and fat.
