old lilihan rug lilihan northwest persia

Old Lilihan Rug, Lilihan, North-West Persia



Item Ref



As a dealer in pre-1900 antique rugs and carpets, I just couldn't resist buying this charming little Lilihan rug. Made in the first half of the 20th century, I couldn't help falling for the beautiful natural colours and superb wool quality. Not only that, but the depiction of the 'herati' pattern or stylised fish swimming in a water garden, always appeals - where two fish represents happiness to these village people.
Size: 1.12m x 0.70m (3' 8" x 2' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1223
