Afshar Bag Face, S. Persia, 19th C., 2’ 10” x 2 1”
A familiar design type practiced by the Afshar weavers of the region, seen here on a larger, bolder scale than normally encountered. The bold graphics are outstanding when compared to other examples of the design type, which are normally smaller weavings than this one. Some wear, holes that have been backed, with frayed edges, all natural dyes.
