Introducing an amazing piece of woven artistry, an antique 1890s Persian rug from the Afshar tribe that boasts hundreds of lovely bird motifs and poled medallions. Handcrafted with precision and care, this rug is a stunning display of the Afshar tribe's weaving techniques, passed down through generations. Each bird motif is a nod to the tribe's reverence for nature and its abundant beauty. The tribal motifs throughout the border bands tie it all together framing this fantastic rug perfectly.
Handwoven with wool that was dyed using organic resources, such as vegetables, flowers, and plants, the jewel tone color palette creates a sense of passion and a bit of drama. Although this rug has been timeworn, every faded thread of this rug tells a story, revealing the many years of use and enjoyment it has brought to those that cherished it. It is fully intact, with its edges bound, and its top and bottom secured. With its unique personality and timeless appeal, this fabulous rug is sure to add a touch of sophistication and elegance to any space it calls home.
