Antique Afshar Tribal Rug, Kerman Province, Southern Persia.



Item Ref



Beautiful shades of vegetable colours abound in this magnificent rug made by Afshar nomads in southern Persia at the end of the 19th century. I particularly love the sky-blue spandrels and the myriad of creatures depicted in the central field. The rug is in very good condition and retains its brocaded ends. This rug was sold by me some 20 years ago and just acquired back. It is published in my book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' on page 116 of the first edition which was published in 1997.
Size: 2.00m x 1.35m (6' 6" x 4' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: MJ1
