Jaf Kurd Bag Face, W. Persia, 19th Century, 2’ 1” x 1’ 8”

Sumptously dyed Jaf weaving with excellent wool.  The surface of this weaving feels like and somewhat resembles the quality of a fine animal pelt, the wool is that good.  And the dyes are first class, apparently prepared by an expert in the field. 

The design, while seemingly “standard” for these Jaf Kurd weavings, is atypical as the lattice field does not touch either of the sides of the field, which is instead finished with an aubergine brown wool with whimsical tertiary devices floating. 

The condition is excellent, no holes nor any repairs.  The ends have slightly eroded.
