The Persian Afshar rugs are from the nomadic, or semi-nomadic tribes of North Eastern Iran. These people have a long weaving history producing rugs in the 5 x 6-7 size range. The common colors are bold hues such as deep reds and rich violets, dark blues, saffron gold, ivory, burnt orange, and sienna. Cochineal, a dye derived from an insect, is a red color with a bluish or purplish hue. In Persian rugs it is found only in Kermans and Masheds and in Afshar’s—all of which are made in eastern Iran.
The exact size of this beautiful example is 5.0 x 7.6 and has a medium pile and dates to the 1980s. Excellent condition, a great addition to any home, my wholesale Sale price is $650. Af-428
