D0916: Antique Afshar Wedding Dowry Rug

Size: 45″x55″

Afshar rugs are woven in the Kerman area of Iran by women of the Afshar tribe. This particular piece was probably woven as a wedding or dowry piece.  That is because the quite bright white main field is very unusual marking it as a bridal piece; whereas most ‘ordinary’ Afhar rugs display a rather dark main field busily populated which various kinds of images, often botehs.
