A stunning Persian Khamseh rug hand knotted circa 1880 with rich and vibrant natural dyes and exceptional quality wool. The ‘botteh’ design is a figurative rendering of the womb and is commonly known as the “mother and child” design. It was adopted in many Persian rug making areas with varying degrees of sophistication, from expressive tribal weavings to fine workshop pieces from renowned weaving houses in Tabriz and Nain. Such was its popularity that textile mills in Scotland refined the design, which became known as Paisley.
This piece is of museum quality as a perfect example of tribal weaving and dying and would sit beautifully in classic spaces.
