All the king's horses, all the king's men, all are silk woven!

From the royal ateliers of Qajar Tehran, a spectacular hunting carpet woven with lush silk highlights. The theme goes back to miniature paintings of the Timurid 15th and Safavid 16th centuries. Very few hunting scene carpets were woven in the Qajar period. The design came into widespread use in the late 20th century, making this historic example a highly collectible piece. Perfect condition, full pile, plus it's the second largest one we have ever seen (and have!). The ruby field combines with the rare emerald green border for a spectacular effect. This artwork on its own will turn any elegant home into a palatial mansion.

The beauty of detail

What our customers say!

J’ai fait la connaissance de Hadi lors de la préparation de l’exposition « L’Empire des roses, chefs-d’œuvre de l’art persan du 19ème siècle » qui a eu lieu au Louvre-Lens en 2018 et à laquelle il a participé par le prêt de tapis exceptionnels. J’avais alors été impressionnée par ses connaissances et sa passion pour les tapis orientaux. Cette rencontre a marqué le début d’une collaboration riche et fructueuse. Elle a notamment permis au musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac de voir ses collections iraniennes s’enrichir de plusieurs tapis et tentures dont certains n’ont pas leur équivalent dans les musées occidentaux. Ce que j’apprécie chez Hadi ? C’est son professionnalisme, son dynamisme et l’engouement qu’il a pour son métier ! Hana Chidiac, Curator of the Middle East Department at the Musee Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, Paris, France 🇫🇷



Hadi Maktabi and his staff provide comprehensive and thoughtful services to collectors and textile buyers worldwide. His knowledge of antique oriental rugs and textiles, including many fine offerings from the Levant, is unsurpassed. We have been loyal customers for over five years and have visited his Beirut premises. He has worked with us upon several occasions to select the exact Ottoman and Levantine pieces we wanted for our collection. You can be sure of quality and honesty when dealing with Hadi.
