Shahsavan Bag Face

item-45376247=1
Shahsavan Bag Face

Lot 0183 Details

Description
First half 19th century, 60 x 58 cm, North West Persia, Azerbaijan

Once part of a khorjin, this face of a sumakh bag displays a box-shaped gül decorated with arrows on a white ground and four triangular shapes in the corners. The main border contains octagons in varying ground colours enclosing double hook motifs. – Arrow gül khorjins take a special position among Shahsavan bags on account of their quality, which is usually exceptional, and the magical aura of their apparently ancient design. They are only paralleled by the turtle design khorjins. The brilliant colours, wool with a metallic lustre and very fine weave definitely make this one of the best pieces in the group. Two very similar examples were sold by us in 1997 and 2005. – Very good condition.
