antique afshar rug afshar tribes south persia

Antique Afshar Rug, Afshar Tribes, South Persia



Item Ref



This rare little Afshar rug was originally sold by me in the early 1990s and it has just been acquired back. It is published in my book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' under 'Afshar Tribes' and is the only one I have seen to date with this unusual, archaic field design of 4 large shrub-like motifs. I believe this is an early weaving of the Afshar - possibly around the 3rd quarter of the 19th century. It is, overall, in good condition although there are small areas of a little wear. This is a very collectable rug.
Size: 1.50m x 1.00m ( 5' 0" x 3' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM720
