Antique Prayer Rug, Timuri Tribes, Western Afghanistan



Item Ref



This charming tiny prayer rug has recently been found in Afghanistan and brought to me by an Afghan aquaintance. It arrived with a small hole in the centre - could it have been from a bullit! - and which I have since had expertly re-woven. The rug, which was made by Timuri tribes in western Afghanistan during the final years of the 19th century, has a beautiful glowing indigo-blue field comprising a small shrub or tree pattern overall and is in very good condition. It retains its flatwoven skirts at each end.
Size: 1.14m x 0.89m (3' 9" x 2' 11").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM510
