1'10 x 2'3 antique Persian Afshar mat / scatter rug (#966)

Regular price $535.00

A great little treasure to add instant folkloric art to your world. This nomadic piece was woven circa 1880 and it comes from a tribe in Afshar, Persia. Rugs from this region have a unique aesthetic and craftsmanship that we cherish. This little mat can be used on the floor, of course, but it can also be placed on a side table for decor, or hung on the as wall art. With its size and style, it can be played up in many different ways. This Persian features lots of woven elements including paisleys (on the edge guard), floral art, geometric motifs and crosses.

It is a hand woven with all naturally dyed wool and sits on a wool foundation. It is low pile, floppy and in good condition for its age. The ground color of this rug is deep indigo blue and it has rust borders.

Afshar rugs are collectables as well, due to the scarcity of its kind, but we always have it well priced and at a great buy for a great piece of history over here at Blue Parakeet Rugs! We believe every home should be decorated with old rugs. :-)

Hand knotted with vegetable dyed wool.
We will send a custom cut rug pad on the house with this order.
