Old Vanity Bag, Shahsevan Tribes, Azerbaijan



Item Ref



This charming little 'chanteh' or vanity bag must be one of the smallest I've handled! It is woven in very fine soumack technique and depicts two camels and two peacocks on the face - the back woven in plainweave technique. It probably dates to around the 1930s and was woven by Shahsevan nomads in Azerbaijan.
14cm x 13cm (5.5" x 5")
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM677
