Old Dining Sofreh, Baluch Tribes, Khorassan Province, North-East Persia.

Dining sofrehs were the equivalent to table-cloths in the West - flat-weaves spread on the floor of the tent on which were placed bowls of food, bread, etc. The tribes-people would then sit cross-legged around the sofreh and eat. This attractive sofreh has a natural camel-hair field with a bold 'tree-of-life' in the centre and woven by Baluch tribes in Khorassan, north-east Persia around the early 20th century.
Size: 1.91m x 0.78m (6' 3" x 2' 7").
