What an amazing sky-blue ground!
This stunning Afshar pre-dates the later 19th century examples with its beautiful sky-blue field containing large 'palmettes' beautifully drawn in varying colours of red and coral.
The colour palette indicates to me that it was made by Afshar nomads in the Shahr Babak region of Kerman province circa 1860-1870. This fabulous and highly collectable Afshar is in very good overall condition with a few minor areas of expert restoration, so extremely good that it cannot be seen!
