Antique Prayer-Rug, Taimani- Baluch Nomads, Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref


What a beautiful, archaic little prayer-rug, made on a natural undyed camel-hair field with a simple 'cross' border pattern and two large 'eyes' in the centre linking to a small 'eye' at the top.
I love the movement created by the weaver when she was creating each 'eye' - just like rippling water!
The rug was probably made around 1880-1890 and is in excellent condition with original flat-woven skirts each end.
Size: 96cm x 81cm (3' 2" x 2' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
