rare antique afshar tribal rug khorassan region northeast persia

Rare Antique Afshar Tribal Rug, Khorassan Region, North-East Persia.



Item Ref



Afshar rugs made in the Khorassan region of north-east Persia are rare. This stunning little rug with its two large Turkmen 'guls' on a glowing indigo-blue field, is superb. The guls incorporate a vegetable-dye rose-pink - an unusual but early colour also seen in the inner border. The rug oozes quality and has a strong Turkmen presence - an indication of the Afshar origins in eastern Turkistan before their mass migrations into Persia and eastern Anatolia in the 11th century.
Size: 1.40m x 1.09m (4' 7" x 3' 7")
