Item Ref



This fabulous Timuri Yaqoub Khani carpet is in remarkable condition - full pile throughout with complete, original kilim and brocade skirts each end and no restoration whatsoever. Made circa 1870-1880, this carpet has been in a private collection to date and treasured.
The stunning indigo-blue ground contains a wealth of Timuri symbolism with highlights of magenta silk throughout. I would say this carpet was undoubtedly made for someone of importance and thus survived the hardships of nomadic life on the Persian/Afghan borderlands. Note at the very base of the field design, six stylised quadrupeds. Charming!
This is a rare carpet from the 19th century Timuri and very collectable in today's marketplace.
Size: 2.74m x 1.52m (9' 0" x 5' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
