A decorative early 20th century Persian Shiraz antique carpet with five columns in red, ivory and black containing floral bouquets within a narrow red rosette border.
Antique Shiraz rugs come from the south western region of Iran in the village of Shiraz. Shiraz is a city in the province of Fars where tribal weavers create Shiraz rugs. The main draw to this type of Persian carpet is the absence of factory creation. They are largely hand-woven on looms by tribal weavers. This fact enhances the artistry and uniqueness of each antique Shiraz rug.
