Large Iranian Gabbeh Rug

A sumptuous woollen Iranian Gabbeh rug in rich earthy colours. Gabbeh is the name of a special rug woven by the Lori and Qashqai tribes and most are sold in the bazaars of Shiraz. This fine example has a graduating main field with a central chess board medallion in ivory and green with pink line border, two surrounding panels with stylised birds and two plain panels, all with varied surrounds, enclosed by an ivory, green, blue and red serrated border. As is traditional with Gabbeh rugs, the ends are kilim and are sewn back on themselves, meaning this is a fringeless rug (an advantage when vacuuming!) Very thickly woven and will withstand plenty of use for many years. Late 20th century.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We gladly welcome visitors but please let us know when you plan to visit as we're often out. Our workshop is based in the grounds of a working rescue farm in the characterful, vibrant and independently minded community of Totnes in beautiful South Devon.
