Antique Persian Afshar Oversize Rug

About

A rare size Persian Afshar rug. For centuries, the Afshar nomads were the preeminent Persian tribal group, populating numerous regions within their country’s borders. By the 20th century, however, their ranks had been diminished to an area in the southeast corner of Iran. Although historians dispute their exact origins, they do agree that their Turkish dialect points to either Azerbaijan or East Turkey. Another interesting fact is the striking similarity to antique rugs woven in the Caucasian village of Chajli in the Shirvan district (part of Russian Azerbaijan).Despite the decline of the tribe’s stature, antique Afshar carpets uphold their once great legacy. Nineteenth-century Afshar rugs and carpets are renown for their consistently high quality of materials and craftsmanship, along with a unique aesthetic. Three of their most prolific designs include simple diagonal rows of “boteh” the Classic “center and cornerpiece” antique carpet design, and a vertical axis of three stepped medallions. Other designs include the lattice or “Tulip” design, prayer rugs, “Tree of Life”, and rows of repeating shield medallions.
