Baluch Bag Face (fragmented), se Persia(?), 19th century, 1’8” x 2’4”

An exceptionally colorful example of Baluch weaving, possibly from southeast Persia. The questions regarding provenance are based upon the structure and the presence of red, salmon colored wefting. I’ve seen no other weavings from se Persia featuring this type of wefting (see detail image of the weave from the back).

But the palette and design suggest this geographical origin The design is exceptionally well drawn, very loosely rendered, as if the the entire medallion is “drooping” down. The visual illusion is consistent with what we expect or hope to see in older weavings.

The colors all derived from natural dyes
