Antique Persian Chahar Mahal Regional Bakhtiari Oversized Carpet Mint 12'8"x 19'9"
A great Bakhtiari in mint condition. The Bakhtiari tribes people of the rugged Zagros Mountains are famed for their perilous annual migrations over snow-capped peaks and for their lustrous, deep-toned antique tribal carpets displaying grand scale, cornucopian designs. An early 20th-century visitor to the lush Chahar Mahal district in Central Persia noted: “To me Bakhtiari carpets are among the most interesting of the tribal village weavings of Persia . . . for they have that quality which we call character: that is, individuality, sincerity, and strength.” Bakhtiari rugs woven from the 1920’s and later are still fairly readily available in today’s market, while the best turn-of-the-20th century and 19th-century antique carpets have become extremely difficult-to-find. With the opening of so many large country homes and estates in recent years, the most breathtaking pieces are now in great demand, and are demonstrating excellent investment potential. 12'8"x 19'9"
