RARE ANTIQUE BIJAR SUMAK with LONG KELIM ENDINGS

Persia c 1900

A rare and fine rug, and of excellent quality and fine weave (flatweave),
original long kelim endings; wool warp and weft,
woven with horizontal alternating wide bands of 'cruciform' calyx medallions,
and narrow bands of flower calyxes (of 'crab form'),
divided by smaller border bands

 

Bijar (Bidjar) rugs are well known for their superb craftsmanship and durability.

Bijar Soumack rugs are quite rare.

This example is quite worthy of wall display.

Those from the 20th century are on a cotton foundation, as opposed to this wool foundation.

 

The 'cruciform' motif is often used on Shashavan soumak flatweaves.

 
Condition: Excellent with a few minor repairs; very little sign of wear
