Description

This new arrival is just a beautiful little vanity-bag (chanteh) in excellent condition.
The different shades of glowing indigo-blue knotted-pile on the face is simply stunning but not only that, the weaver has incorporated a fabulous back in plain-weave with two horizontal bands woven in un-dyed wool. The centre lozenge on the blue piled face depicts the symbolic double-headed sunbird - guardians of the gates of Paradise.
This is a really lovely collectible vanity-bag.
Size: 26cm x 29cm (10" x 11").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1497
