TYPE: ‘eye-dazzler’ design kilim (Persia) – SOLD

CIRCA: 1920 or before

A strikingly beautiful south Persian kilim – or flat-woven pile-less rug – of undetermined tribal / nomadic origin, with a truly spectacular ‘eye-dazzler’ design that is so vigorous that its intense shimmering effect almost appears to be vibrating. It is very finely woven using soft hand-spun wool warp and weft saturated with rich natural dyes and has a lovely abrash. There is an old restoration / repair to one corner and some oxidization throughout parts of the main brown field (as can be see in the above images). Altogether an extraordinarily visual, very well executed, nomadic eye-dazzler piece with an hypnotic attraction. ALREADY SOLD.
