Antique Dining Sofreh, Timuri Tribes, Borderlands of Eastern Persia/Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref



This fantastic dining sofreh - a flat-weave for spreading on the floor of the tent during mealtimes but reserved for special guests - was woven by Timuri tribes during the second half of the 19th century. The natural camel-hair field contains stylised 'trees' rising up from the symbolic underworld, through the earthly world and into the realms of the spirit. The weaving is exceptional - a rare and wonderful work of tribal art.
Size:2.18m x 0.79m (7' 2" x 2' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: B6
