Item Ref



Illustrated in the recently published 3rd edition of my book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' page 278, I sold this rare and beautiful Zili in 2006 and it has recently come back to me.
The madder-red and indigo-blue squares contain adult and baby peacocks or winged griffins, and was made in extremely fine balanced plain-weave with continuous and discontinuous wefts. A superb and highly collectable wall hanging, made in the Baku region of Azerbaijan around 1880. Such pieces are a rare find these days - most found in today's market are fragments.
Size: 1.90m x 1.30m (6' 3" x 4' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: DR1
