Orange Diagonal Stars Shiraz Kilim

Beautiful and bright old kilim from Shiraz in Iran. The pleasing diagonal design of differently coloured eight-pointed star (or scorpion) motifs, set in a lovely orange field, is more sophisticated than in many kilims of this age. The inner border is of half stars on a nicely abrashed subtle pink, with an outer border of small adjoined diamond medallions.

Shiraz is in southwest Iran and nowadays sees many varied designs, with aspects of Khamseh, Luri, Qashqai, Afshar, owing to the presence of now-settled nomadic tribal groups.

This kilim shows signs of wear typical of its age, but is a collectible piece.
