Ref 1652

Afshar Rug, circa 1900

3'2 x 2'6

(095 x 076 cm)

The weaver inscribed her rug at the top the work of Esfandagheh which is a village near Sirjan in South Persia and at the lower Amaleh Jadidi maybe the name of the weaver or donor. Sir Percy Sykes who was the British Vice Consul in Kerman related that the Afshar tribe only numbered 18,000. Consequently the majority of weaving known as Afshar originates from villages spread throughout the South Persian province of Kerman.
