Description
Afshar - Carpet - 205 cm - 152 cm
Wool on cotton - Iran - Early 20th century

Shiraz Qasqai with signs of wear.
The central medallion stands out.
Beautifully decorated spandrels (4 different spandrels).
Two large frames, both stunning (one with a white background and another with a brown background – brown set using iron oxide).
The carpet is worn in one section of the central field, but it is nevertheless a true masterpiece due to the beautiful medallion, the frames and the patterns in the spandrels.
Highly interesting carpet.
