A hand knotted Persian Bibikabad rug from the Hamadan district of Persia with bold and brilliant berry red ground. It features an open field design and a large central medallion in diamond floral shape, surrounded by floral sprays. Detailed corner spandrels in the field and the border frame the rug beautifully.
The rug is low pile with scattered wear. Some areas have more wool that you can grab with a pinch of the rug, while other areas are lower pile (mainly in the field). It's a durable and heavyweight Persian at a phenomenal value.
Please note, as pictured and because this is an old handwoven piece, the middle width of the rug bows out just a tad and thus, the rug is not perfectly straight, a natural characteristic of women who wove for several months on end.
Handwoven circa 1920 with vegetable dyed wool.
