Antique Afshar Rug, Neiriz, Southern Persia



Item Ref



This 'tree-of-life' Afshar rug which measures 1.93 x 1.55m (6' 4" x 5' 1") was made in the environs of Neiriz in southern Persia around 1900. The rug is in good condition with a rare pale yellow field incorporating a tree-of-life and birds are depicted sitting on the branches. The deep indigo-blue border powerfully frames the central field. The last rug I have owned of similar type to this one is illustrated in my newly re-printed book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' page 121.
Viewing by appointment only.
