"Old Afshar Rug, 177 Cm X 178 Cm, Iran, Hand-knotted Wool, Late 19th Century"
AFSHAR carpet, (Avshar) also called, Sirdjan, almost a square, hand knotted in wool, from the end of the 19th century, 177 cm wide by 178 cm long, in shades of yellow ocher and red ocher laid on a covered field of native shades covered with small botehs.
The color treatment has been done on the basis of plants and minerals.
The ornamentation of this piece of great finesse is composed of a decoration of a large medallion, placed in a belt of eleven borders, all bordered by a braid of very fine execution.
the carpet is in good condition considering its age and has no restoration, the colors are bright and give it a magnificent character.
A very nice copy in its own juice which will appeal to the connoisseur with its usual wear and tear.
In the south-east of Iran, around the city of Kerman, live the semi-nomads of the Afshar tribe.
For a long time these nomads lived in the northwest of Iran, but part of the population moved to the southeast where carpet making was an important economic sector.
These rugs have shades of red, ocher and blue, purple and the majority of them have geometric patterns.
The most common pattern used is a large central field with one or more square medallions.
This decoration is supposed to represent the skin of an animal stretched before being tanned.
What is typical of Afshar rugs is that they are relatively wide in relation to their length. In the neighboring town of Shahr Babak, similar rugs are woven with a higher knotting density and with patterns very rich in detail.
Afshar rugs are also marketed under the name Sirdjan Carpets.
This rug has been professionally cleaned and environmentally friendly.
Traces of wear visible along the edges which gives this type of ethnic carpet its authentic character
. A very beautiful and rare rug due to its construction and the quality of the wools and the design.
