A very distinct 1880s Baluch! This baby truly shows off its age, history and style. This is an old village rug, Baluchi tribe members hand wove this amazing piece, and Baluch rugs stand out to collectors and rug enthusiasts for their distinct look and rarity. What makes this truly rare is that Baluch rugs are woven 99% of the time in 2x4 or 3x5 size as they are nomadic wool rugs that the tribe members would travel with. We feel very lucky to have found a few of these rare woven sizes in the last 3 years of antique rug hunting!
Hand knotted with vegetable dyed wool on a wool foundation. It is all natural, real deal and an original! It has a gorgeous ground color that will vary slightly due to lighting. If you look closely, you will see the hints of green in the pattern of the rug. Also, the edges that are so decorative and in flat weave is stunning and shows off the artisan's skillset, as this it is so intricate and with a few different dyes.
It is low pile with beautiful scattered wear. Please see pics.
