5'3 x 6'8 square Antique Persian Afshar (#1603) / 5x7 vintage Rug

Regular price $1,800.00

This is a wool rug woven on a wool foundation and is quite tribal piece speaking lots of song and story. Look closely and you will see peacocks in this rug

It was woven circa 1880 in the south of Persia in the region of Shiraz and its wool was naturally dyed with vegetables, roots and plants sources. 

This is a worn rug that shows off its age and features diamond medallions. Its definitely a hard wearing rug that is durable and displays immense character with its subdued look earned through time.  

It would look great on a hard wood floor as well as on stone. The strength in its earthy and natural color ways is soothing and bold at the same time. It is a low pile, but a thick rug with old world wool you can truly feel, and it has a great size for styling. It will bring immediate charm and history to a space in the home or office and is very fairly priced for a great piece of history.
