Antique Saddle-Bag Face, Shahsevan Nomads, Moghan Region, Azerbaijan.



Item Number

BM/Shahsevan 1


Just arrived, a pair of very early and rare knotted-pile saddle-bag faces, made by Shahsevan nomads during the early 19th century in the Moghan region of Azerbaijan. Although missing their flat-woven backs, these bagfaces are highly collectable in todays market-place. The beautiful, saturated natural colours are just magnificent and the wool is soft and glossy.
Size: 53cm x 50cm (1' 9" x 1' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/Shahsevan 1
