Antique Vanity-Bag, Qashqa'i Nomads, Fars Province, South-West Persia.



Item Ref



This superb vanity-bag ('chanteh' in Persian) has been in our collection for many years but now it's time for someone else to enjoy it as we have done. Made by Qashqa'i nomads in Fars, south-west Persia at the end of the 19th century, the bag is complete with knotted-pile face incorporating the 'continuous knot' symbolising the eternal cycle of life and a fabulous back, brocaded in soumack technique. Bags like this are now incredibly rare and few of this age exist amongst the Persian nomads today.
Size: 26cm x 23cm (10" x 9").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: RUGMAC6
