antique afshar carpet afshar tribes kerman province southern persia

Antique Afshar Carpet, Afshar Tribes, Kerman Province, Southern Persia.



Item Ref



This elegant carpet was made by Afshar nomads in Kerman Province, southern Persia, circa 1870-1880. The carpet is in very good overall condition and comprises a 'boteh' design on a madder-red ground - the boteh or flame symbol, originally believed to have originated in Kerman amongst the Zoroastrians. The carpet retains its plain-weave kilim skirts at both ends and I like the depiction of the three small quadrupeds in the lower left side of the red field.
Size: 2.60m x 1.45m (8' 6" x 4' 10").
