Afshar chanteh

Early 20th Century
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

This set of small Afshar double bags draws two bag faces with diamond and rosette centers against deep indigo fields. The borders of meandering flowers are simple and pleasant. Of particular interest are the several inscriptions throughout the field in red. While some are illegible, others seem to clearly read "ya Ali", a Shia religious benediction.
