Baluch Animal Trapping/Band, se Persia, 19th Century, 4” x 5’ 1”

These animal bands from the Baluch weavers of se Persia, often reflect a very codified and consistent design pool but this one differs and while probably not unique, it is a very rare design. It is believed these bands were used to adorn camels or other animals for special occasions, possibly including weddings.

The colors are all derived from natural dyes. The condition is good, though the length is certainly not full as there is not end finish on either end. It is shorter now than it originally was, but given the age and the fact this band was used rather than preserved for posterity as many of them apparently were, the condition would have to be termed as good. There is plenty of pile, some areas of slight wear, but no repair or re-weave.
