Description

This elegant carpet was made by Afshar nomads in Kerman Province, southern Persia, circa 1870-1880. The carpet is in very good overall condition and comprises a 'boteh' design on a madder-red ground - the boteh or flame symbol, originally believed to have originated in Kerman amongst the Zoroastrians. The carpet retains its plain-weave kilim skirts at both ends and I like the depiction of the three small quadrupeds in the lower left side of the red field.
Size: 2.60m x 1.45m (8' 6" x 4' 10").
Viewing by appointment only.
