Magnificent antique Bakhtiar rug from West of Iran. Tree of life design with pigeons on top and beautifully coloured Cypress trees on either side on a cream back ground. The royal blue in the border gives the perfect background to the colourful flower heads. The handspun wool in this Persian rug has such wonderful velvety feel, which has been achieved through ageing with the aid of the natural dyes throughout the piece. Wonderful example of Bakhtiari workmanship at its best.
