Antique Half-Saddle Bag, Shahsevan Tribes, Moghan Region, Azerbaijan.



Item Ref



Wonderful, natural, vivid colours abound in this half-saddle bag, made by Shahsevan tribes in the region of Moghan, Azerbaijan, during the last quarter of the 19th century. I love the pattern of symbolic 'S' motifs - either a depiction of stylised birds or dragons. The bag is in excellent condition and retains its original flat-woven back in horizontal bands of red and golden-yellow.
Size: 60cm x 50cm (2' 0" x 1' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM913
