Product Description

An unusual south-west Persian chicken rug, woven by the Arab-speaking tribes of the Khamseh Confederacy and dating from the last quarter of the 19th century.

The rug is comprised of two red lozenges, bordered with a deep indigo field of stylised chickens. To the inside of the tessellating border, there is an area of tightly arranged scales, of ivory, green, blue, red, brown and yellow.

The construction of the rug is typical, using coarse wool and natural dyes. The
knots are asymmetrical.

The condition of the rug is good, areas of the fringe and overcasting have frayed but are stable. Generally, the dyes retain their vibrancy, but some of the more trodden areas have faded with time.
