Item Ref



This magnificent salt-bag - 'namakdan' in Persian - was originally part of my private collection of bags, but I've decided I'd rather pass it on to someone who will enjoy it rather than it stuck in a camphor chest! The bag is rare, complete with braided hanging cord and superb in every way. Woven by Shahsevan nomads in the Hashtrud region of north-west Persia/Azerbaijan, bags like this were used for storing rock-salt which was given to their animals to help in the dehydration process during long migrations. A very collectable salt-bag an illustrated in my 3rd edition 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' page 263.
Size: 67cm x 40cm (2' 2" x 1' 4").
Viewing by appointment only.
