This finely woven Bakhtiari carpet of unusual design is
probably from Chaharshotor village, Chahar Mahal Valley, west Persia. It
is inscribed Farmayesh Hazrat Ajal Akram Agha Ahmad Khan [Made to
the order of the most noble Ahmad Khan] and dated 1327 [AH] (1908-9
CE). Ahmad Khan does not appear among the family tree of the Great
Khans of the Duraki, for whom the majority of inscribed Bakhtiari carpets
were woven; he may be identifiable with Ahmad Chaharshortori, a
wealthy landowner at this time. The village of Chaharshotor (or Chal-i
Shotor) is renowned for the exceptional quality of its weaving. Other
carpets are known with inscriptions in this distinctive calligraphic style
attributed to the same village that were also made for local dignitaries
who were not members of the ruling Bakhtiari families.
Persian Bakhtiari large square carpet handwoven from wool in Iran. Central medallion design and bearing a cartouche detailing the date and special order of the Khan that instructed its creation. Items of this size are considered oversize with respect to the dimensions of a standard room.
