Superb Qashqai ‘Birdbag’
Size: approx 2'2" x 2'3" (face only)
Date (circa): 3rd Quarter 19th century

I’ve not seen a ‘Birdbag’ of this quality with such a fine ‘Eye dazzler’ back before, it’s a real treat. As for those glowing red birds on the beautiful tan coloured ground, I can only describe them as peerless. A really top notch example of tribal art, filled with charming details that speaks to the care and attention that went into making them. Stunning natural dyes. The jewel in the crown of any collection. In full, heavily patinated pile, with several primitive repairs to the corners and one small one in the field. The kilim back has been reinforced with machine stitching in places but does not disturb the eye too much.
