  • Material Wool

  • Style Medallion

  • Origin Bakhshayesh

  • Size 458 x 340

  • Age 1850


One of the all time best Bakhshayesh rugs in the world. Perfect condition. Amazing in weave, rich with materials and endlessly attractive to the eye. The pile is full and mostly consists of undyed natural colored sheep's wool with hardly any abrash nuances--a rare feat for such rural cottage rugs. This ivory tonality is a decorator's dream and in fact works excellently in any type of setting. The medallion intriguingly contains cloud band forms and a pinwheel motif, relating it to the Chondzoresk Caucasian rugs woven in the Kazak district a bit further to the north. This is a rare historical item that shows us how organically and culturally related the Heriz district and the Caucasian Khanates were up to this period. This automatically sets the carpet at a date prior to 1881 when the Russians closed the border. The fact that it is woven on woolen warps further supports this. Six ๐™๐™–๐™ง๐™จ๐™๐™–๐™ฃ๐™œ motifs floating in the field hint at a further correlation. Charming lazy lines appear in the field, a technical term that describes a certain craft habit in the villages of Anatolia and the southern Caucasus.

The beauty of detail

What our customers say!

The idea of purchasing valuable rugs and other artwork online from an overseas seller is daunting for several reasons, not least of which is the fact that, not being able to examine and feel the rug for yourself, you are never entirely certain that the origin, age or condition of the rug corresponds with the dealerโ€™s description. For me, I could never take this step unless I had absolute trust in the integrity of the dealer, and my recent experience with Hadi confirms that my faith in him was well placed. Every detail of the antique rug expertly explained by Hadi was accurate and when I finally received the actual rug, it turned out to be even more stunning than his photos depicted. F.

I first met Dr. Maktabi as a lecturer on carpet history and was captivated by his passion for the subject. Only later I knew him as a dealer, though even in our financial transactions, Hadi has been a gentle guide and friend. He has understood my taste and interests and made wonderful suggestions, but never in a pushy way. That is to say I have enjoyed working with him on several levels and wish to continue our excellent relations and dealings far into the future. A.

โ€œYou donโ€™t just buy a rug from Dr Maktabi... Itโ€™s an experience, a rich one! You learn about history, culture & art. And more importantly you feel euphoric!โ€ Dr Siamak Abolhassani, Expert Medical Care Clinics, Victoria, Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ
