This beautiful, complete 'balisht' - pillow-bag - is extremely finely knotted with a natural camel-hair field incorporating a stylised 'tree-of-life'. The bag, made circa 1880, is complete with terracotta plain-weave back and is in near mint-condition.
Complete bags like this are rare today with many having lost their backs through wear or simply, unscrupulous dealers cutting the backs off to make small, saleable rugs!
This balisht has been stuffed and is ready for sale either with stuffing or without.
Size: 91cm x 43cm (3' 0" x 1' 5").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/PC11
