Item Ref



This handsome small bag-face was once part of a complete saddle-bag and with constant hard use in unforgiving tribal conditions, the rest of the bag was probably damaged and discarded. This, therefore is all that remains of what must have been a gorgeous pair of bags. The vegetable colours are superb and the wool is soft and lustrous - as good as can be found in the weavings of the Kurdish Jaf tribes. Made during the third quarter of the nineteenth century, the design of concentric 'birds-heads' lozenges is typical of this particular tribe.
Size: 71cm x 50cm (2' 4" x 1' 8").
