antique prayerrug timuri tribes western afghanistan

Antique Prayer-Rug, Timuri Tribes, Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref



Here we see a good early prayer-rug made by Timuri nomads around 1860. The indigo-blue field contains a stylised 'tree-of-life' and the brocaded skirts at each end are intact - a rare feature these days. The rug is in very good overall condition, albeit having the usual brown-dye corrosion, more obvious in the lower part of the field.
Size: 1.40m x 0.97m (4' 7" x 3' 2").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM2
