THE RUG OF THE MONTH NOVEMBER 2016

LURI BAKHTIARI

3’5” x 7’2”

This antique Luri Bakhtiari rug was woven in the Luristan province of western Persia, circa 1910s. There are several characteristics that make this rug an exquisite piece of art. First of all, despite curvilinear floral design combinations of traditional Persian rugs, this rug is decorated with geometric patterns. Although Persian Heriz and Serapi rugs are considered geometric in patterns, those are apparently stylized floral designs, while the motifs in this rug appear to be strictly geometric and encompass many characteristics of Caucasian rugs.

Against this background, close examination reveals that the distinctive designs of this rug are derived from a creative combination of Persian and Caucasian motifs. For example, the two octagonal medallions on the abrashed-blue main field have the feel of Caucasian designs, yet the inside of each is decorated with Persian stylized-floral patterns. One of the two remaining medallions in the middle is inspired by Persian “Shah-Abbas pattern,” and the other by Caucasian diamond pattern. The rest of the main field is decorated with trees, flower plants, palmettes, rosettes, diamonds, and stars, all of which bear the combination of Persian and Caucasian elements.

Another appealing characteristic of this rug is that it has two equally-balanced primary borders instead of one; and, no secondary borders. Only thin barber-pole patterns surround the borders. The white ground of the outer border amplifies the rich colors and exquisite designs of the main field. In fact, it makes us realize that this Luri Bakhtiari rug is created through the rendition of the legendary Persian garden design with Caucasian artistic sensitivity.

This is an exceptional gem for anyone who appreciates the beauty and the value of antique Oriental rugs.

THE RUG OF THE MONTH

Dear valued Clients and Friends:

 

During our latest inventory count, we were so captivated once again by very many outstanding rugs that we have decided to share some of the exceptional ones with you each month as “The Rug of the Month.”

 

Here is this month’s pick:

 

TURKMEN YOMUD RUG

4’ 6”  X  6’ 3”

TURKMEN YOMUD RUG 4’ 6” X 6’ 3”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a fine example of an antique Turkmen Yomud tribal rug. It is probably woven by the Ersari tribe—an ethnic group that is renowned for developing its distinctive weaves and designs. The wool used in weaving this rug is renowned in the trade for its lustrous and hard-wearing properties. It comes from the famous indigenous breed of Karakul sheep in Ghazny province, the southeastern region of Turkmenistan. The carding and spinning of the wool is done by hand. The balls of wool are made into skeins which are then dyed by the weaver’s family.

The black-brown dye used in this rug has oxidizing properties, which is obvious through the erosion of the pile on the background. This erosion also gives us a clear indication of the antique vintage of this artwork—circa 1880s.

 

Turkman Yamoud (detail)

The diagonal rows of an octagonal single diamond-shaped motif in red, ivory, blue, and turquoise is repeated on the black-brown main field. A single stripe replicating the primary border in designs and colors divides the main field into two. The red primary border is decorated with repeated polygonal rosettes alternating in ivory and blue. The secondary inner and outer borders are decorated with the same reciprocating dog-teeth design in alternating ivory, red, and blue.

 

The two ends of the rug are decorated with repeated tree motifs with serrated leaves. The surprisingly random use of yellow leaves on one end; and, the repeated wine-glass single row bordering the “X” shapes on the other end further enhance the charm of this tribal yet elegant rug.
