This colorful Afshar bag face draws a familiar theme of ‘boteh’ paisleys against a deep indigo ground. The botehs here are openly drawn, integrating the blue ground with clusters of flowering buds. A classic Afshar border of vine-scroll and abstracted rose blossoms, many colored with several shades of green, frame the piece against a complimentary terra cotta ground.
