923. an appealing old Persian kilim

Old Persian kilim

923. Provenance: Qashqa'i Confederacy of Tribes (?) Fars Province, southern Persia

Size: 190cm x 138cm

Age: Circa 1940

Condition: Good with just minor re-weaves.

Notes: A simple but highly effective tribal kilim. It has been woven in two pieces, and then stitched together - this is testament to its tribal origins, as nomadic herders often travel only with small looms that can be more easily transported by donkey or camel. The strengh of this piece (and it's sister, #924), is it's wondeful natural dyes and it's vivid pale indigo.
