Shahsavan bag face, Khamseh region, nw Persia, size 21" x 21" (54 x 54 cm), circa 1875, fine weave with cloth-like handle, all natural dyes, excellent condition, professionally washed and clean, multiple borders and border stripes are a distinctive feature of Khamseh bags of this period, the use of abdal burum motifs in the primary border is visually significant, on occasion this design can seem static and overly structured, the presence of these 'slim' abdalburum figures inject a fluidity or sense of movement to the work, this visual effect is enhanced by the small 's' forms around the central medallion.
