Unusual Afshar Rug

This pretty tribal Afshar rug from south-east Persia is full of interesting ornamentation. The funny little man, the charming animals and star motifs all celebrate the beauty of nomadic life, while the flowering urns at each end reveal the influence of urban design from the nearby city of Kirman. It\\\'s a fascinating rug, both decorative and collectible. Fine handspun wool and natural days. There are a few knots in the centre dyed with fuchsine which dates the piece to around 1870 to 1880. Very good condition. Professionally cleaned and ready for immediate use.
