Item Ref



The so-called 'shield motif' depicted over the whole indigo-blue field of this magnificent carpet, is actually a representation of the double-headed sunbird opposing each other on either side of a small tree or shrub. This is a rare symbol on 19th century Afshar tribal rugs and one which, over many years, has been of a highly collectable group. The natural colours throughout are beautiful and the overall pile is in excellent condition, complete with striped kilim skirts each end.
Made circa 1860-1870 in the Neiriz region of Kerman Province, southern Persia, this stunning carpet would fit in well to a collector's pot pouree!
Size: 2.14m x 1.52m (7' 0" x 5' 0").
