Item Ref



This beautiful nineteenth century Afshar tribal carpet is finely knotted with a highly stylised 'herati' pattern in the indigo-blue central field interspersed with 'double-headed birds heads' lozenges. The outer madder-red ground contains tiny stylised 'botehs' providing a powerful guard. The overall pile is evenly-low with no signs of any sporadic wear and the carpet is complete with plain-weave skirts each end.
This is truly a superb large carpet made by Afshar tribes in Kerman province, south Persia circa 1870 and has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
