Antique Saddle-Bag Face, Timuri Nomads, Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref



Here we see a beautiful example of the highly collectable 'cockerel' bags - once part of a double saddle-bag but what remains is one face minus outer borders. Made by Timuri nomads in western Afghanistan circa 1870, the stylised cockerels symbolise the harbinger of the day and the dispeller of the night. A very collectable little bag face.
Size: 54cm x 59cm (1' 9" x 1' 11").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: SJ7
