Vintage Abadeh Rug
Abadeh Rug, South West Persia, Wool on Cotton Foundation. Late 20th Century, The tangerine field with a blue octagonal medallion enclosing an ivory flower head formed by pairs of 'boteh' supported by mirrored trees issuing palmettes and flower heads, scattered flower heads, florets, birds and animals, within blue stepped spandrels enclosing ivory flower heads, scattered flower heads, plants, birds and rats, an ivory border enclosing continuous polychrome palmettes linked by angular vines issuing flower heads and leaves.
Abadeh is a well known centre for the production of decorative furnishing rugs with designs often based on traditional regional tribal patterns. This pattern is based on a style as seen in traditional Ghashghai nomadic rugs. Motifs are drawn geometrically displaying stylised flora and fauna forms, with motifs often totemic in appearance, this based on a tribal tradition dating back many centuries. A variety of birds and animals are often scattered amongst the flora elements. Much of the fauna is commonly seen, however there are instances where less common animals and birds are seen. The presence of a rat as seen in the spandrels is unusual and rare, but they do appear from time to time. Other unusual fauna that do appear are snails, tortoises, worms, centipedes. There is no specific meaning to such an addition, but is simply meaningful to the weaver who may have included it as having encountered one, and choosing to throw into the composition. Tribal rugs are superbly individual and a part of their charm is when such additions are included. The colours are from a traditional Abadeh palette, with tangerine, blue, pale blue and ivory predominantly used.

Very easy to deal with and accommodating. Am delighted with my purchase, which is just as described and which was delivered safely as per my instructions.
I needed a dining table for my family, and kept an eye on Kernow's inventory. Found a beautiful, square-shaped mahogany table with leaves that allow for expansion when guests are dining with us. Beautiful! The team at Kernow were wonderful - answering questions, sending additional photos to show different angles or assure of quality, and even advising of a promotion. Loving the table, it really made our family Easter dinner!
A beautiful rosewood wardrobe, great communication and fast delivery
The piano stool arrived a couple of days after ordering, even though it was a Bank Holiday so couldn’t have been speedier. The packaging was very secure and the piano stool arrived in excellent condition. Very ornate - quite a talking point and suits my Victorian cottage. I shall continue to watch the website for interesting pieces of furniture.
Always wanted one ...love it!
I bought a little table and chairs, but couldn’t take delivery for a little while. The Kernow staff were very understanding and helpful. When the table and chairs arrived, they were very carefully packed and I’m absolutely delighted with them. They were exactly as described and are quite beautiful. Thank you to everyone at Kernow - please keep the weekly email coming - there’s always a treasure of some kind in there!
I bought this item as a birthday present for my daughter in law who loves amber glass and she was delighted. It is a beautiful shape and colour and is even more lovely in reality than in the photos. Your description of items is always accurate and honest, so you know what you are buying. The prices are competitive and items just a little bit different. I love your website and follow it every week for new arrivals, just to see if there is another item I can snap up for myself, friends or family.
We ordered a corner washstand which was despatched with speed and with updates on its whereabouts, then arrived looking and sized exactly as in the picture. We’ll def visit Kernow Antiques online again - the overall curation and quality of the offerings is at a really high level, the prices fair, and the communication good.
Two beautiful plates from the 90ties a present for my daughter, she was enchanted.
With fantastic service as always
