original long kelim endings; wool warp and weft,

and narrow bands of flower calyxes (of 'crab form'),

Bijar (Bidjar) rugs are well known for their superb craftsmanship and durability.
Bijar Soumack rugs are quite rare.
This example is quite worthy of wall display.
Those from the 20th century are on a cotton foundation, as opposed to this wool foundation.
The 'cruciform' motif is often used on Shashavan soumak flatweaves.
Condition: Excellent with a few minor repairs; very little sign of wear
