Rio Bravo 1959 With John Wayne:
Rio Bravo Rugs
Below: John Wayne "Out Cold" on an Oriental Rug. The carpet appears to be a "Bakhtiari" type weave with a Joshegan and or Caucasian Kazak Tree design influence. True Joshegan designs are typically found to have repeating "garden" elements in a "diamond print" orientation. We're leaning toward the Bakhtiari weaving, as the were sometimes found to embody many characteristics of Joshegan designs, however, typically featured coarser weave as this rug seems to embody. All previously mentioned with exception to the Caucasian would be classified as "Persian Rugs."
Below: Perhaps a Mahal from Persia or an Agra from India! Today similar designs can be found in Jaipur Indian Rugs as well.
