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

CIRCA: 1920

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 (as can be see in the above images). Altogether an extraordinarily visual, very well executed, eye-dazzler piece with a hypnotic attraction.
