Acquired from a private collection, this superb khorjin (saddle-bags) was woven in soumak technique by Shahsevan nomads in the Moghan region of Azerbaijan around 1870-1880.
The khorjin is in excellent complete condition with original lappits and ties and given the purpose of hard use on tribal migrations, the weaver has even sewn leather strips onto the base of the bag and around the lappits, in order to protect it from daily wear. This is a truly magnificent and rare khorjin in amazing condition.
Size: 1.50m x 0.56m (4' 11" x 1' 10").
Viewing by appointment only.
