Antique Baktiari runner

Circa 1900
385 × 127 cm 12’7” x 4’1”


An antique Baktiari runner woven in the south-west of Persia with a beautiful array of colours, wonderful birds and abstract tree designs in the main field with exquisite natural dyes.  This antique runner dates from around 1900-1910 and is in good condition in general, only a few areas of minimal lower pile.  Woven on a soft wool foundation, they tend to be light to touch and come in a variety of designs, but Baktiari rarely produced runners. A wonderful vibrant tribal antique runner to brighten up a hall or corridor.

Please arrange to visit our showroom in Crondall, Surrey to view hundreds of rare antique carpets, rugs and runners.  We would love to show you this antique runner up close.

Or please request a home visit to see this exceptional and rare antique runner in situ, we travel all over the UK, from Surrey to Scotland showing our carpets in customers homes.  Or you can purchase this runner on our website with confidence and we shall ship it straight to your door.

Baktiari, which is west of Isfahan, is a region where rugs used a similar medallion format to those of Isfahan rugs. This is where the similarity ends, as this village rug is coarsely woven on a wool foundation whereas Isfahan rugs are finer and woven using a cotton foundation. We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire & the UK by appointment.
