Antique Prayer Rug, Baluch Shahraki-Sarbandi Tribe, Sistan Province, South-East Persia



Item Ref



This stunning prayer rug was possibly made by the Shahraki-Sarbandi Baluch tribe of Sistan province, south-eastern Persia around 1860/1870.
The rug is in excellent condition and retains its fabulous, brocaded, flatwoven skirts at each end - most unusual in design. The central 'tree-of-life' is depicted on a natural camel-hair background and small stylised creatures can be seen on either side of the '8-pointed star' at the very top of the tree. This is a highly collectable prayer rug of this tribal group.
Size: 1.63m x 0.94m (5' 4" x 3' 1").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM909
