Kurd/Shahsevan "Khorjin" (saddle bag), NW Persia, 19th C., 1'6" x 3'4"
A complete "khorjin" (saddle bag) from NW Persia. The confusion of 'mixed' attribution is due to the weave suggesting a Kurdish attribution while the patterning in the border is a Shahssevan feature.
The colors are all derived from natural dyes. The condition is evident in the photographs with no repairs but signs of use, i.e. a 'real' tribal weaving that once had a life in a living culture from the past.
Price - $700 (including domestic USA shipping)
