ANTIQUE PERSIAN BELOUCHI HAND KNOTTED WOOL RUG, 3' x 5'9": This attractive Belouchi has an unusual pattern but uses traditional colors. The field is composed of rows of squares with a central diamond that divides the squares into four parts. Rust, dark blue, beige, and brown with white accents are the colors used throughout the rug. Belouchi rugs traditionally use little white wool in their rugs but there is a lot more white in this rug than usual. This makes the various motifs "pop" and puts it in the class of a collector's piece. Condition is good for its age.
