Unique Antique Nw Persian Tribal Pictorial Rug. Camels, Humans, Goats, And Birds

UNIQUE ANTIQUE NW PERSIANTRIBAL or VILLAGE RUG, probably from the Bakhshaish or Sarab weaving region, circa 1880's - 1890's, and coming in verygood overall original condition for the collector. The size is:2'-6" x 4'-3" (76 x 130cm).With its plethora of goats, little birds, humans, and two camel caravans, this unusual late 19th century NW Persian tribal or village pictorial weaving may adowry weaving created whimsically to represent fecundity and prosperityin the marriage.The rug has a symmetrical knot structure on cotton warpswith the alternate warps beingdepressed giving the weaving a firm structure and asturdy handle in the hand. The mixed wool wefts are comprised of natural brown wool and wool dyed red. All of the dyes are natural with the one row of camels knottedin natural browncamel hair (see photos 1 and 4). The pile is in very good evenly medium-low condition. NO rips, holes, tears, moth damage, worn areas, odors, stains, color fading or bleeding of colors. The double side cords, wrapped in red wool, are original and complete. Both the top and the bottomoutermost guard borderswere a bit ragged in the past have been re-woven prior to my finding the rug (see photo 10).Both of the endings are now sewn secure to prevent any future loss of structure. Also, acloth strip with rings was sewn at the top end to facilitate use as a decorative wall hanging (see photo 11).This folksy and quite charming antique textile artifact is clean and collection ready and itcan be immediately displayed as a decorative conservation piece wall hanging in the home or office. This little carpet is quite strong and it can be used right away as a decorative floor covering with a high quality pad underneath.

ADDENDUM: If onelooks at the ground color of this weaving closely you will find about 10 different shades/hues of madder red dye used for the field. Perhaps the weaver was supplied with remnant batches of wool from other weavers for this project including the camel hair used for one of the camel drivers and the camel caravan across the middle of the field. The branching red and blue "fleur-de-lis"-likemotifs seem to be ancient trees sheltering animals and birds within and among the branches. Note the two mengarbed in yellow cloakswith drawn swords touching the shamrock-shaped branching leaves at the top of the field. Everything about this rare little rug points to a rural origin whether it be tribal, village, or nomadic. Certainly there is an original story being told here with this pictorialtextile relic.
