9.3 x 12 Antique Heriz Goravan Carpet with Bid Majnun design of Cypress and Willow trees, Northwest Persia, circa 1915
The Cypress and Willow tree format, referred to as the Bid Majnun design, is seen in various types of antique Persian rugs and carpets, including in tribal weavings by the Bakhtiyari tribe in southern Persian, Bidjar rugs from Kurdistan province in northwest Persia and in Heriz and Bakshaish carpets from further north in Persian Azerbaijan province.
This Heriz district carpet was woven in the village of Goravan. Goravan carpets are generally less finely woven than other carpets from the Heriz area but are renowned for their color quality. Heriz carpets with the Bid Majnun design more frequently feature salmon or coral color fields and this navy field example is somewhat unusual. The coral color border frames the field beautifully.
Areas of reweaving, repiling, flatistitch restoration and "touch-up'.
