Persian Balouch and Leather Floor Cushion
Early 20th century
Wool, leather, feathers
34" x 34" x 8" high

Woven with the repeated geometric motifs and colors--russet, maroon, indigo--typical of this type of early 20th century Persian floor covering. This piece is in a beautiful state of wear for its age. We have had the carpet transformed into a generously proportioned floor cushion, with a patchwork leather bottom and feather-and-down stuffing. A compelling accent in a well-considered room.
