Antique Afshar Tribal Rug, Kerman Province, South Persia

Two beautiful birds adorn the stunning indigo-blue field of this gorgeous little rug. The stylised rose bush is growing out of an urn and the birds symbolise the carriers of the soul from the earthly world to the world of the spirit. This vegetable-dye rug was finely knotted by Afshar tribes in Kerman province around 1900 and is in mint condition. It has to be seen to appreciate the fabulous glowing colours.
Size: 1.14m x 0.92m (3' 9" x 3' 0").
