Name: UNBELIEVABLY RARE Antique "Golfarang" Kerman Lavar | Saffron Gold with Lilac, Rose, Lavender, Midnight Blue & More | Paradise Border
Size: 9.10 x 13.4
Age: Antique; C. 1920-30's
Pile: Low/Medium with lovely age-related patina. This piece has incredibly soft wool, I would say it's softer than lamb wool!!
About: WE WILL NEVER SEE ANYTHING LIKE THIS AGIAIN. I really never knew something like this even existed - a Heavenly Paradise field with different bird subjects sitting on rose and flower buds, and a border that represents resilience (camels), prosperity (rooster), contentment (cow), and luck (canary) - amongst other motifs and symbolism. Saffron Gold, Sunflower yellow, soft and medium lilac and lavender, pink and Old English rose, dozens of shades of blues from midnight to cobalt to indigo and even French and Ice blue, antique beige and linen hues, and lots of nice chestnut, almond, walnut against some great purple hues that read eggplant and even deep Plum. I just can't believe this piece - super finely woven, wool pile softer than lamb wool, and the prettiest and most poetic all-over pictorial pattern. Obsessed, shocked, intrigued, and just downright stunned every single time I look at this rug. True art and ONLY ONE in the world.
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.

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.
