This rare, lion emblazoned Gabbeh won't last long so take a good look at it while you can. A prime example of a superb Gabbeh in every way (fine knots, soft wool, delectable color) it features a lion symbol deeply important to Persian culture––so much so that it was the emblem of Persia for some 500 years. A few times a year, someone will call us in search of a lion rug. Do we have a lion rug? For a brief moment, we do.
