antique afshar rug neiriz kerman province southern persia

Antique Afshar Rug, Neiriz, Kerman Province, Southern Persia.



Item Ref



I love the soft natural colours in this beautiful rug made by Afshar nomads in the Neiriz area of Kerman Province, southern Persia around 1900. The centre of the indigo-blue field depicts a massive flower-head with vases of flowers emanating from each end. The flower-heads then form the spandrels - disappearing out under the borders and into infinity. Small quadrupeds - possibly deer or gazelle can be seen around the central flower.
Size: 1.70m x 1.25m (5' 7" x 4' 1").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1407
