Description

Just arrived, a rare and beautiful Timuri prayer-rug of the Dokhtar-e-Qazi tribe made circa 1880.
Dokhtar-e-Qazi literally means 'daughter of the judge' - a sub tribe of the Timuri that occupied the border area of eastern Persia and western Afghanistan. The indigo-blue field is decorated with a small tree or shrub design which is peculiar to this tribe together with the distinctive pointed-shape mihrab. The rug is in excellent condition and is complete with flat-woven ends.
See my book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' for a similar example and my recent article in the December 2018 Carpet Collector magazine covering the Timuri nomads.
Size: 1.43m x 1.13m (4' 8" x 3' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/SJ
