antique sofreh baluch bahluli tribes southeast persia

Antique Sofreh, Baluch - Bahluli Tribes, South-East Persia



Item Ref



This rare and charming little knotted-pile Sofreh was made by the Bahluli sub-tribe of the Baluch during the second half 19th century. Such pieces are early and very archaic in their drawing showing a small square field containing a 'birds-heads' lozenge in the centre and rectangular bordered end panels. The pile overall is low and there are a few small areas (seen in the photo details) where a hole has developed - easily repairable! Nevertheless, this is a very unusual piece and highly collectable.
Size: 1.20m x 0.79m (4' 0" x 2' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM624
