This beautiful pair of mini saddle-bags were made by Afshar nomads in Kerman Province, southern Persia circa 1900 and are in near-mint condition. Woven in flat-weave technique with superb, saturated vegetable colours, you need to look at the amazing back just to see how highly the weaver considered these bags to be when she was making them. Bags like this are rare today with very few now existing amongst the nomads themselves.
Size: 67cm x 30cm (2' 2" x 1' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
