unusual bachtiar rug. From a distance the design appears consistent with the Kashkai and other rugs from the nearby area of Shiraz. However, the weave confirms that this is a Bachtiar piece. There is a large range of colours and shades, including unusual greens and turquoise which suggests that most, if not all, of the dyes are natural. The rug is in perfect condition and probably dates from the mid 20th century. Reference 1777. 201 x 155cms. €950.
