Baluch Kilim, se Persia, 19th c., 3' 7" x 9' 9"

An old example of flat weave work from se Persia. The weave type is a bit different, with a slit tapestty technique used (see detail images). The difference in weave as well as paletee suggests this was made by an entirely different group than others of similar design, and that this weaving group lived in a different locale, given the palette.

As some have said, provenance determines palette, ie. similar dyestuffs will yield different colors based upon many factors including soil content, maturity of the plant as it is harvested for use and the manner in which the dyes are prepared.

The condition is apparent in the photo, with no repair or re-weaves. It is in original condition as it first appeared in the marketplace of Quetta where it was first offered for sale. All the colors are derived from natural dyes.

Please inquire for further details and information.
