Antique Baluch Tribal Rug 3'3 x 4'9

Collector's Notes

Antique Baluch Prayer Rug. This tribal rug was woven by the Mushwani/Mashwani group in the last quarter of the 19th century. The center displays three stacked radiating stepped diamonds with latchhooks on deep blue background traced by the 'running dog' style minor border. The hand panels on both sides of the prayer niche are filled with fine stylized trees elements. Great as a floor rug or as a wall hanging.
