Most Bibikabad weavings are large,some over 20 ft. in length and a scatter rug from that area is relatively rare.The herati design,often stacked in different colours,as here,is particularly popular.The ivory pendants of the central medallion are particularly chunky and bold.The camel tone corners indicate that Bibikabad is not far from Hamadan.
The navy border of mobile branching vines,and semi-geometric floral elements keeps the eye moving around the carpet.
Bibikabads have an unusual weave,with offset knots rather than in distinct vertical columns.This sets them apart from other Persian village rugs.The condition is fairly good with slight overall wear.The pile was originally quite short,the better to display the careful drawing.Antique Bibikabd rugs and carpets are always found with short pile and in some cases they need a fair amount of restoration.The rug presented here is in good condition which shows that it was a very well-preserved piece.It has been cleaned professionally and is free of any odors or stains.This Bibikabad rug projects a formality generally alien to the more folky Hamadans.For further information please email us or call us at 212-268-5876.
