Item Ref



This very rare and unusual Qashqa'i rug was made by the Kashkuli taifeh with silk wefts - made for a Khan or tribal chief. The rug contains an ivory inscribed panel in the lower indigo-blue field which reads 'Sanay'e Qashqa'i' and dated 1298 in the Islamic calendar - 1881 in the solar calendar. The four outer botehs and four inner botehs are beautifully drawn and the indigo-blue abrash shows the lovely use of natural colour.
Size: 1.25m x 0.95m (4' 1" x 3' 1").
Viewing by appointment only.
