antique prayerrug timuri dokhtareqazi tribe western afghanistan

Antique Prayer-Rug, Timuri Dokhtar-e-Qazi Tribe, Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref



The prayer-rugs with this specific design incorporating a pointed mihrab on an indigo-blue background with overall small 'shrub' or 'tree' in the central field, belong to a small sub-tribe of the Timuri called the Dokhtar-e-Qazi (daughter of the Judge or Khan). Rugs of this quality from the 19th century rarely appear on the market these days and this one is one of the best - a beautiful example of the type with a wonderful palette of vegetable dyes. The last one in my possession was many years ago and published in my book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' under the 'Timuri' section.
This rug dates to circa 1860-1870.
Size: 1.53m x 1.12m (5' 0" x 3' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/JS
