Antique Dining Sofreh, Timuri Tribes, Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref



Dining Sofrehs were spread out in the tent during mealtimes and bowls of food placed upon it. The nomads would then sit around the sofreh, cross-legged, and enjoy eating and good conversation. This truly magnificent sofreh with its intricate brocading throughout, was made by Timuri nomads around 1880-1900 and is in excellent condition. It is a fabulous example of these now very rare sofrehs.
