This antique Qashqai bagface was woven in the late 19th Century by the artisans of southwest Persia. This bag is all original and the flatwoven kilim back is fully intact, a rare find. It features a vibrant array of saturated colors including cochineal-carmine red center and dark-blue background. The central ivory colored rosette motif has two latchhook diamond elements extending top and bottom with two floating left and right. An intricate weave at the least with a variety of motifs interspersed throughout. Collector's piece. Great wall hanging or accenting room piece.
Note: the Qashqai were known for their classic knotted pile bags and bag faces featuring large central diamonds usually outlined with ivory bird latchhooks and interspersed with animal motifs.
