The Mysterious Lady of Garrus

The Mysterious Lady of Garrus

  • Number pon83

  • Material Wool

  • Style Pictorial

  • Origin Bijar

  • Type Tribal

  • Size 406 x 122

  • Age 1921


This is an enigma.
It's a wool on wool Bijar runner of Garrus type, an old and highly regarded provenance. Most of the carpet is in Herati Mahi style but at the top we see a beautiful young lady with coiffed hair, manicured nails, rouge lipstick, fashionable hat, and an open necked robe. Not the typical Persian fashion sense of the early XX century.
Intriguingly, there is an inscription in mirror writing, with date. Deciphering it yields the equally mysterious name of Ostad Hamid Danieli and "Garrus, 1339".
As avant gardiste a rug as you will see.

Zeina Tebbutt, Sidney, Australia 🇦🇺


To me personally there is no surprise, event or frankly anything that gets me more excited than the purchase of a treasured piece of understated artwork such as that of a proper vintage/antique carpet. The sourcing, grading and authentication of these pieces is no small task but is of the highest importance. Through the respected dealer Hadi Maktabi all that is guaranteed, and rest assured the one thing I can guarantee personally as a client is a first class service from the initial selection process till it gets delivered right to your door step. It was an undeniably special experience, with hundreds of carpets to choose from, will definitely be visiting again. Thank you dear Hadi. Habeeb Al Monawer, Kuwait 🇰🇼
