Woven with a deep indigo ground and playful border, this Afshar rug displays a repeat design of abstract floral clusters. Collectors of south Persian tribal weaving sometimes refer to this design as 'gol-i-kadkhodai,' which translates from Farsi as 'village headman's flower'. The origin of this name is unclear; however, the design appears more typically in Khamseh weavings from southwest Persia. Repeat images of clusters and garlands of roses, based on European (particularly French) models, were popularized in the 19th century in Persian workshop weavings and this design may be a tribal interpretation of the theme. Whatever the case, it provides a fantastic medium for the use of south Persian tribal color. Collection of Mr. and Mrs. John Corwin.
