Antique Timuri Tribal Rug, Western Afghanistan



Item Ref



This stunning rug was made by Timuri tribes in western Afghanistan during the second half of the 19th century. It is in near-mint condition, retains its complete slit-tapestry flat-woven skirts at each end and I have had it superbly washed to bring out the wonderful natural colours. The archaic field design of stylized 'trees of life' is generally found on larger carpets of the tribe - seldom in small rugs like this one. A truly beautiful rug.
Size: 1.83m x 1.09m (6' 0" x 3' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1084
