Item Ref



Small Poshtis (mats) made by the Qashqa'i are uncommon and this charming little poshti has a myriad of '8-pointed' stars throughout the central field, disappearing under the borders and into infinity. The '8-pointed' star symbolises protection and in Persian, is referred to as 'gezel geichi'.
This little poshti is in good overall condition albeit the pile is evenly low, and was made at the end of the 19th century.
76cm x 54cm (2' 6" x 1' 9").
Viewing by appointment only.
