311. A wonderful old Afghan Charshango Rug

Old Ersari Afghan Charshango Rug

311. Provenance: Charshango subtribe, Ersari tribe, Northern Afghanistan

Size: 210 x 140 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condtion: Very good. Very minor patches of lower pile.

Notes: This tribe inhabits the area either side of the Amu Darya in Turkestan and N. Afghanistan. Their rugs are pretty hard to find, as they are less common than the Turkoman 'elephant foot' octagonal gul. Lovely madder red field, and a limited but harmonious, peaceful palette.

Price: $775
