Qajar Block Printed and Painted Textile

Dating to the mid-19th century, this rare Persian textile depicts scenes from the famous story of Shirin and Khosrow, a tragic romance by the 12th century poet Nizami Ganjavi. The delicate palette and pretty scenes are engaging and very decorative. Note the dimensions which would make this a wonderful addition to a decorative scheme adding exotic character. Lined and professionally cleaned. Minor areas of loss to the field, but generally in very good condition.
