Small 'khorjin' (saddle-bags) like this are rare these days. Most were cut in half by unscrupulous dealers in the bazaars of Azerbaijan, Turkey and Iran being more saleable as individual bags. Therefore few complete bags survived. This small khorjin is extremely finely woven in soumack technique comprising double-headed birds in the centre of each bag symbolising the guardians of the gates of Paradise. The ivory cotton border is beautifully drawn with spacious symbols all the way round.
The khorjin is complete with plain-weave madder-red back.
Size: 67cm x 28cm (2' 2" x 11").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: RUGMAC2
