Description

Does anyone like horses?!! Then this is the rug for you!
This is an amazing nineteenth century rug of the Shekarlu sub-tribe within the Qashqa'i Confederacy, made circa 1870-1880, comprising a myriad of men on horseback. In some of the close-up photos, you will even spot foals! There's a lot going on and whoever buys this magnificent rug will spend the rest of their lives finding something new every day - a lifetime of study!! As a matter of interest, the very central lozenge contains pomegranates. The rug is evenly-low in pile but otherwise, completely original with only very minor repairs.
Size: 2.34 x 1.52m (7' 8" x 5' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1547
