Description

This magnificent flatweave was woven by Kordi nomads in the vicinity of Quchan in north-east Persia around 1880. The work is quite amazing and I particularly love the depiction of various birds and deer. Even the madder-red skirts at each end show a line of deer! The only other similar example of this type that I know of, is published in James Opie's 'Tribal Rugs' on page 167. I would guess this flatweave was a dowry piece and a highly prized possession.
Size: 2.06m x 1.04m (6' 9" x 3' 5").
Viewing by appointment only.
