Antique Saddle-Bags, Afshar Tribes, Kerman Province, Southern Persia.



Item Ref



These magnificent 'khorjin' (saddle-bags) were made by Afshar tribes in Kerman Province, southern Persia around 1900. The depiction of birds sitting on either side of an urn is generally found in the rugs of the Afshar but very unusual in a pair of saddle-bags. The ivory border is beautifully drawn and other than some minor damage to the corners of each bag, due to wear, these bags are complete and in excellent condition.
Size: 1.35m x 0.76m (4' 5" x 2' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1165
