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.
