Charming vintage Baluch rug from Northeast of Iran. Baluch rugs are usually on the smaller size with simple design and interesting characters. This piece with five squares containing lozenges on a cherry red back ground fits the simplicity bill. But the unusual mustard border and interesting geometric guard border takes it to another level. When you look closely at the motifs between squares you see the distinct tribal charm of this piece. The out of proportion chicken with cypres trees separating them on one level and then the women in between the chickens on another level. This is the fun mind of a tribal weaver.
