Baluch Rug with Cruciform Design

Khorasan, 2nd half 19th Century, 38" x 70"

Baluch Cruciform Rug full

Despite the obvious condition challenges, this is an unusual and lovely drawing. Though not unknown, the drawing is not often seen, yet extremely well conceived and executed. The soft wool and sophisticated and subtle color palette bring out the powerful graphics of the designs. The white ground border adds additional pop to the visual effect.

Among other colors, this rug has three distinct blues and two purples.


Though essentially complete, the rug has a range of obvious condition challenges.
