#7756 Shiraz Rug This circa 1930 Shiraz Oriental Rug measures 6’6” x 9’0” (198 x274 cm). It is a very nice looking Shiraz in a big size. The motif is four diamond medallions on a dark blue ground absolutely covered in tiny symbols such as eight pointed stars, stop sign shaped symbols, little people and flowers. The rug is very much a ‘chicken rug’ ala Kampseh. All this action is surrounded by an ivory frame covered in crosses and quadrupeds which are probably horses with raised tails. The major border is variegated red with different chickens on it in navy, brown, blue, tobacco and green. The reciprocal minor borders are flower heads separated by triangles on a dark blue ground. The ends and sides are complete and have never even been raveled out. The edges are nicely wrapped in blue, red and green wool like every Shiraz I’ve ever seen. The rug has 99% perfect pile. i believe the warps are mixed with a little goat hair. The rug is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $40. http://www.antiqueorientalrugs.com/persian4.htm
