Antique Timuri Carpet, Yaqoub-Khani Tribe, Western Afghanistan



Item Ref



This magnificent carpet was made by the Yaqoub-Khani Timuri tribe at the end of the 19th century - probably around 1900. It recently came out of an old English country home and was well cared for, having originally been in the collection of Dr Jon Thompson. The carpet is in mint condition with minor corrosion to the dark brown colour and a wonderful use of old aubergine colour-dye. Note the many stylised creatures depicted throughout the field.
Size: 3.35m x 1.88m (11' 0" x 6' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM458
