Very Pretty Shiraz Rug

Very Pretty Shiraz Rug

This sweet Shiraz rug is a very useful decorative rug. It has very nice warm colours especially the abrashed blue, and a very charming tribal design. The medallion is centred by the Qashqai emblem hinting at the origin of the weaver. The wool is soft and lustrous with a nice sheen. Note the original barber pole sides have survived intact as well as the kilim ends. In generally good condition but with sufficient signs of wear to give it the elusive lived-in look. Professionally cleaned. Note also the useful small size which is difficult to find in antique Persian rugs.
