Description

Late 19th century antique Bidjar rug, classical Herati design in the main field and wonderful tribal border motifs.  In very good order all over for a rug of this age.  Woven with a natural wool ivory border this lightens the rugs palette.  The famous ‘Herati’ design is the pattern we see in the main field, which consists of two stylised leaves around a flower.

. . .

 In the 16th century this used to be two fish swimming around a water-lily.  A great antique rug in wonderful condition, professionally washed and supplied with our sturdy anti-slip rug underlay.

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 or the ‘Mina-Khani’ floral design all over as in this example.
