This magnificent salt-bag ('namakdan' in Persian) was recently found in Iran. It was made by the Darrehshuri sub-tribe of the Qashqa'i Confederation circa 1900 and is in complete, excellent condition.
The warp structure contains an equal mix of goat-hair and white cotton with overlay/underlay goat-hair patterning on the wide vertical bands. The 3 borders are woven in brocaded wool as are the 3 horizontal bands in the main section of the bag. Particularly charming are the woollen tufts throughout which were possibly inserted for good luck.
This is a rare and fabulous salt-bag and would complement any collection.
Size: 55cm x 46cm (1' 10" x 1' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
