Antique Rug | 5.9 x 13.10 | BEAUTIFUL European Sized Ancient Rug


*All of our antique & vintage rugs are professionally cleaned prior to being listed*

It was UNUSUALLY Dark the day we photographed this piece, so we have to re-shoot it but if you're interested let us know and I'll send you some more pics and even a video of it so you can get the sense of the true color palette.  It is not as soft as the first pic and not as dark as the rest of the iPhone pics - it's a tricky one to get right but it's no doubt a BEAUTY!

Name: Antique Northwest Persian Bakshayesh 

Size: 5.9 x 13.10

Age: 1920's

Pile: Low/Med

About: The size alone is rare, let alone the unbelievable color palette; eggplant, magenta, lilac, ice blue, honey-yellow, soft rust, antique beige, lake blue/french blue, sky blue, hints of grass green and pistachio green, and so many more! Sensational Bakshayesh border with the iconic water-garden design throughout the entire field. You can see the eyes of the fish in the motifs adding to its mystical intention. Amazing fence border between the guard border and the field. True folklore in this piece from top to bottom. Pure wool pile with hand-spun wool foundation and all organic dyes. This rug is truly something to marvel at if you have a space for this; whether the entryway, dining room, living room and/or anywhere else that will take this size - truly consider it. It is incredible.

This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.

Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.

Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!

We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.

A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
