A rare and stunning tree of life design antique Bidjar rug, woven with the Persian date 1300 which translates to 1921 in the Gregorian calendar, currently 99 years old and in near perfection condition! Along with the date is woven the text Farah Bakhch which is in the Rasht province further north from Bijar and close to the Caspian Sea.  The weave construction is Bidjar and extremely tough with a tough fine weave and dense pile, we usually expect from rugs from this area.  Often weavers travelled and used varying designs from different areas they visited, the tree of life design was more often seen in rugs from cities such as Tabriz or Esfahan.
The animals and birds in the rug are quite spectacular throughout the beautiful tree of life design, with a wonderful array of colours, this antique rug truly is a work of art for the floor or to be hung on a wall. Original ends are secure with a long fringe still at the end it was cut off the loom, a near perfect wool pile make this an exceptional decorative collectable rug.
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.
