Description

During the 1500s, 4,000 Kurdish families were moved from Kurdistan to Quchan in Khorassan Province, to guard the area from invading Turkmen and Uzbeks. Their rugs and bags are quite different from those made in Kurdistan and this powerful example shows the Turkmen influence of large-scale 'guls' depicted in the aubergine field. Although evenly low in pile, this rug is a superb example of early Kordi work from the Quchan area - possibly 1860s.
Size: 2.26m x 1.57m (7' 5" x 5' 2").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: SM3
