$16,500.00Price

Peso Priced Item;  A Kermanshah rug from around 1890's.   Kermanshah, a city in the Kermanshah Province of western Iran, was built on the Zagros Mountain range during the Sasanian Empire in the fourth century CE. It was strategically located near the border with Babylonia and faced numerous attacks by tribes and armies over the centuries. The Arabs and the Ottoman Empire were notable occupiers of the city on several occasions. Kermanshah is in the Kurdistan region and has a majority Iranian Kurd population. The city is a center of trade for many towns and villages in the Kermanshah Province. The surrounding Kermanshah area is famous for the finest wool in Iran, as it benefits from the climate near the Zagros Mountains. Notably, Kermanshah wool was purchased by Kashan city weavers for their high-quality carpets made during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

This antique rug (mat) measures 24" by 34".   Very good pile considering it's age, but there are some loose threads on the outer edges (called overcast).  A little TLC could mend these sides, or use it as a table cover.  Kermanshah rugs with substantial pile are rare.   They were always thin, so after 120+ years or more of use, naturally they wear.  This one did not!  These are classic Victorian Era carpets.
