Antique Afshar Rug With Single Large Medallion Design
Antique Afshar rug with single large medallion design.
An interesting Afshar rug of a very rustic design, the rug is of a slightly uneven square shape with a large medallion in soft madder red with a smaller ivory medallion inside. The corners are in a glowing indigo blue filled with simple flowers. The ivory main border is a well drawn example of a classic Afshar design.
The rug is in original 'as found' condition with even wear, slightly heavier in places with medium / low pile. The ends are a little ragged and the sides have some wear.
Hand washed and ready for use or display. A good rustic tribal Afshar rug.
