Antique Prayer-Rug, Timuri Yaqoub Khani Tribe, Borderlands of Eastern Persia/Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref



Early examples of Yaqoub Khani Timuri prayer-rugs are rare. This is an extremely finely-knotted example from the mid 19th century with a natural camel-hair field and highlights of silk throughout.
Note the very long brocaded skirts at each end - a sign of early work. The field contains a 'tree-of-life' rising from the underworld, through the earthly world to the world of the spirit. The rug is complete albeit having some wear, particularly at the base. Priced accordingly but very collectable and illustrated in my newly published 3rd edition of 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' page 88.
Size: 1.62m x 0.76m (5' 4" x 2' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: MAC33
