Antique Persian Qashqai kelim dating to around 1900.

It is a highly decorative flat weave from the southwest of the country. The field design is very simple: three lozenges are arranged along a central vertical line, with the central medallion on an off-white ground flanked by two further medallions on a black ground. They are sparsely decorated with eight-hooked motifs around a central hexagon. Four smaller geometric patterns adorn the otherwise empty spaces between the lozenges, which are set on a plain red ground.

The main outer border on a soft mustard yellow ground is defined by a chain of hexagons which are filled with a grid of four diamonds, the same design to the four hexagons in the field.

Kelims of such simplicity are highly sought-after for their bold decorative qualities. 

The kelim is worked in naturally dyed wool in slit weave and interlocking tapestry weave.

It is in excellent condition.
