Antique Persian Qashqai Kelleh Carpet

An Antique Persian Qashqai gallery carpet or “Kelleh” of tremendous scale. Qashqai carpets of this size are rare and would have been made for the Khan, or leader, to take pride of place during gatherings and festivals. It has a particularly interesting border of chickens facing one another and the main field design is scattered with animal and plant motifs.
The landscape in South West Persia is often rocky and barren and the time and skill required to weave a richly coloured woollen carpet of this warmth and vibrancy is perhaps an artistic reaction to the harshness of the environment.
Hand knotted circa 1890 and in exceptional condition, this piece is a show-stopping addition to large dining rooms, entrance halls and drawing rooms.

Size: 469 × 206 cm, 15'4" × 6'9" ft
