Antique Bidjar Kelleh

Circa 1900
305 × 134 cm 10’ x 4’4”


An absolutely beautiful antique Bidjar Kelleh with a rare and stunning white border using a delicate repeating boteh design.  This small corridor carpet is in very good condition and has the most classic of Bidjar designs of a repeating herati field,  surrounded by a very beautiful pale border.  The weave and construction of this carpet is typical of high quality Bidjar carpets, being stiff and solid to the touch.

. . .

 The condition is very good indeed with original ends and selvedges.

Rugs from Bidjar are very tough due to their structure which consists of usually five weft threads, two are loose wool threads followed by one taut cotton thread, then a further two loose wool threads. These are tightly beaten together against the knots, creating an extremely tight, compact rug. They tend to be floral in design, with the ‘Herati’ fish design commonly used in the main field and border.
