This circa 1920 Shiraz Oriental Rug measures 5’6” x 6’3” (171 x 192 cm). It is a lovely Shiraz in a Khamsheh design very similar to what’s known as a chicken rug. There are lots of birds and animals on it. The motif has a center ivory medallion flanked by two rust medallions on a variegated dark blue ground completely covered in design. It has birds, quadrupeds and a little man in a boat. It has reciprocal minor borders. All is encompassed with an ivory ground with an interesting geometric motif. The rug is very wooly. The nap almost seems alive. An interesting effect! The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping including insurance of $40. http://www.antiqueorientalrugs.com/CLOSEUP%20PAGES/7701%20Shiraz%20Rug.htm
