Late 19th Century Afshar Extra Weft Wrapped Horse Cover Rug

About

This extraordinary Afshar horse cover is exceptional both for its rarity and its artistic merit. Executed in an extra weft wrapping technique, a field of 'boteh' paisleys is drawn against a tawny apricot ground. An inner reciprocal trefoil border folds back on itself and forms a new mirrored motif within the chest flap, while an outer white border of linked rosettes frames the entire piece. The distinctive palette of this piece is seen in many mid-century small Afshar pile pieces. In this case, the drawing and resolution of both motifs and borders speaks to a heightened understanding of design and execution on the part of the weaver. 1.
