Antique Prayer Rug, Timuri Tribes, Western Afghanistan



Item Ref



This stunning little prayer rug was made by Timuri tribes in western Afghanistan during the last quarter of the 19th century. The rug has a natural camel-hair field and is in mint condition with unique tassels braided into the lower left and right corners - something I've never seen before! The design of 'ashiks' in the camel field is unusual in this type but we see the popular Timuri border highlighted in ivory. A truly great rug. These rugs are regularly mis-labeled 'Baluch'!
Size: 1.40m x 0.89m (4' 7" x 3' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM907
