Afshar Masnad, Afshar Tribes, Kerman Province, South Persia.



Item Ref



A very fine, rare small rug, probably made as a 'masnad' - a very special rug made as a ceremonial king's rug - and made by Afshar nomads circa 1880.
When the king had no access to the royal throne, a small rug called a masnad substituted for the throne. The central lozenge is dramatic in rich, natural indigo-blue and the madder-red surrounding it contains typical small Afshar shrubs.
The rug is in very good condition, complete with additional narrow skirts at each end. A very special little rug.
Size: 1.04m x 1.04m (3' 5" x 3' 5").
Viewing by appointment only.
