Outstanding 1960s Authentic Handmade Fine Vintage Persian Bidgol
Lovely Mid 20th C. High Quality Fine Vintage Persian Bidgol Rug. Made of all Natural, vegetable dye, hand spun, hand woven, baby lamb's wool pile on cotton foundation. It is certainly rare and uncommon to come across Bidgol in the marketplace. Very few pieces are ever woven in this satellite town in the proximity of the city of Kashan. So it is no wonder that the few that are produced are of extreme high quality and artistic workmanship. Given the fact that Persian rugs are product of a desert-like environment, it is taken for granted that primary colors are used in the majority of the rugs produced as a means of absorbing the harsh sunlight in order to be soothing to the eye. Therefore it is rather rare to come across rugs with such predominant soft tones for indeed the city of Kashan lies at the edge of the desert.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Iran
Please note that the left hand side of the rug looks a bit brighter because of the way the sunlight is hitting the rug, and that is not a defect.
The beauty and the value of vintage or antique rugs are hidden in the uniqueness by the personal touch of the master weaver from the tools that they have or had available to them. Due to these old processes, the rugs may not have straight lines or square corners. Moreover, even with our best intention to inspect these rugs, they may have some old repair, or some spot that may not be easy to see. Please bid accordingly.
