Description

This gorgeous pair of mini saddle-bags ('khorjin' in Persian), depict roses in each of the bag-faces and roses in the ivory border. The rose originated in Persia before being grown in France and the UK. The use of a pea-green colour in the central field of each bag-face is unusual and I love the 'bridge' with its symbolic flowing water - important of course, in order to keep the roses alive! This khorjin is in near-mint condition with its original madder-red plain-weave back.
Size: 87cm x 34cm (2' 10" x 1' 1").
Viewing by appointment only.
