396. An incredible antique tribal Qashqa'i Bagface

Antique Tribal Qashqa'i Persian bagface

396. Provenance: Qashqa'i Confederacy of Tribes, Fars Province, Southern Persia

Size: 94 x 92 cm

Age: Circa 1880

Condition: Good for age. Minor losses at ends. The original plainweave back to this bag is no longer there (hence it's term 'bagface'!)

Notes: Glorious natural dyes for which the Qashqa'i's are rightly famed, and chock-full of talismanic and heraldic tribal motifs. Tribal woven art at it's most vibrant!

Price: $450
