The indigo-blue field of this charming bag-face, once one half of a complete double saddle-bag, contains a myriad of chickens, all pecking at seeds on the ground. Made by the nomads of the Khamseh Confederacy around 1870, all the colours are from vegetable dyes and although the pile is evenly low, it makes a most attractive and decorative wall-hanging.
Size: 59cm (2') square.
Viewing by appointment only.
