Rare Antique Baktiari runner

Circa 1890
393 x 96 cm 12’10” x 3’1”


A very stunning and rare antique Baktiari runner woven in the south-west of Persia with a beautiful array of colours, wonderful tree design in the main field with exquisite natural dyes.  This antique runner dates from the late 19th century and is in good condition with a super soft handle and medium high 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.   We have not encountered a runner from the tribal weaving area of Baktiari for a very long time, as they produced small tribal rugs primarily.

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. The colours on this rug really stand out on the black main field, which makes for a marvelous nomadic rug.

We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire & the UK by appointment.
