Baluch Prayer Rug, NE Persia (Khorassan), late 19th Century, 3’ x 5’ 9”
Baluch prayer rugs are another type of weaving from Persia and Afghanistan that I seldom represent. Many seem to be contrived, ie. made for market with little of the tribal aesthetics to which I am drawn.
The condition is good, with no holes or repairs. The colors are all derived from natural dyes.
