3.5 x 5.4 Antique Bidjar Rug, Northwest Persia, Circa 1915

Rugs from the Bidjar area in northwest Persia’s Kurdistan province with this type of articulation of the design, with a somewhat geometric medallion and corner spandrels with a lot of open space in the format, are often attributed to the village of Gogargin.

One more typically sees Gogargin type Bidjar rugs in either the approximately 2’6″ x 4′ size or in the approximately 5′ x 7′ size, referred to a s a “Dozar” size. This intermediate size, referred to as a “Zaronim”, is less common.

With high quality wool and saturated natural dyes, this piece would be an excellent choice for a beginning (or advanced) collector or for furnishing where a moderately priced, durable rug is warranted.
