In his book on antique Hamadan rugs, J.P Wilborg attributed a related example to the village of Gharagan.

The Hamadan rug featured here is in a somewhat uncommon long and narrow size sometimes referred to as a “long rug”, “gallery carpet” or “Kelleh” size. It features two navy, ivory and red medallions floating on a red open field. The camel color border has a design suggesting this rug was woven by a Kurdish weaver, of which there were many living in Hamadan Province.

A moderately priced furnishing rug with good color and character.
