Unusual antique Baktiar carpet

An early Bakhtiar carpet from west Persia dating c.1900. Early Bakhtiar carpets, woven in the Zagros mountains of west Persia, are one of the few types that encompass both Persian tribal and city rug design influences. They are notable for their high wool quality and rich colours.
This early example has artistic Arts & Crafts characteristics where each pattern in the central field is cleverly repeated in a different colour combination, instead of the central medallion motif, framed by a wide ivory border. It has wonderful vegetable dyed colours and is in excellent original condition, including its fringes at both ends - a remarkable feature for a rug of this age.

Gallery Yacou is a family owned business run by Robin Yacoubian and his father, Ezekiel, and has been in the family for over four generations specialising in antique, decorative and contemporary carpets.

We passionately believe in the importance of choosing the right rug for each individual room, and that the rug not only complements the space but adds depth and soul to it.

With our broad depth of knowledge and collective experience, we are able to advise our clients on the various options we have in our collection that would complement the various spaces.

We work with a range of clients including leading interior designers and architects, members of the design industry, hoteliers, private clients and collectors. Some of the projects for which we have provided rugs include grand listed buildings, hotels, embassies, modern city apartments, 17th century abbeys, country houses and residential homes.

We have just recently relocated from our showroom on the Fulham road to our studio/workshop in North London.

We are members of the antique dealers associations, BADA and LAPADA, and an Industry Partner of BIID, the British Insititute of Interior Design, and exhibit annually at the BADA & LAPADA Fairs. Please email us using the enquiry form opposite, if you would like a complimentary ticket to any of these Fairs.
