Description

This beautiful little rug, made by Timuri tribes on the border-lands of eastern Persia and western Afghanistan circa 1850, is a very rare and collectible type with its natural camel-hair field, containing a myriad of tiny shrubs in beautiful natural shades of red, blue and green. The main border itself is rare and the remains of the brocaded skirts have been preserved with binding on the reverse. The sides have been re-selvedged in order to preserve as much as possible, otherwise there are no other repairs.
Size: 1.22m x 0.78m (4' 0" x 2' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
