Antique Baluch Tribal Rug, Khorassan Province, North-east Persia.

This antique has been viewed 55 times in the past month with the most views from Hong Kong.


The deep indigo-blue ground contains a myriad of cockerels, symbolising the harbinger of the day and dispeller of the night. Made by Baluch tribes around 1880 in Khorassan Province, north-eastern Persia, the rug is in excellent overall condition with no repairs and retains its original plain-weave skirts. The wool is lustrous and glossy and it needs to be seen to appreciate the beautiful natural colours. I've tried to capture the beautiful colours outside in natural daylight and these can be seen in the close-up photos attached.
