1930 Persian Gabbeh


This 1930 Persian Gabbeh rug consists of a handspun wool warp, weft and hand-knotted pile. Its rich reds, greens and blues were all created using natural vegetable dyes; and the creams, browns and blacks exhibit the beautiful natural coloration of the sheep’s wool.


The design is unique for a Gabbeh of this era, making this an exceptional one-of-a-kind improvisational piece. In addition to the repeating diamond pattern shown throughout the field, there are intricate motifs depicting eagles and pastoral animals native to the Zagros mountain region. The patterning of the border is also intricately detailed.


This rug measures 3’8″ x 5’5″ and is in excellent vintage condition.
