Description
Tribal Afghan Baluch - Carpet - 260 cm - 130 cm
Wool on wool - Afghanistan - Second half 19th century

Antique tribal Baluch. The carpet has 3-4 main colours: an indigo blue tending to violet, an orange brick red and an ivory white (then there is also yellow, brown, etc.) The wool is of the finest Afghan quality (see close-up photos).
The motifs are arranged diagonally.
The frame is special and beautiful.

Intact edges, imperfect fringes.
Unique pattern.
It is an exceptional carpet in my opinion.
The final part of the two headers is done in Kelim.
Size 260x130 cm
