Description

Woven in soumak technique, this stunning little 'chanteh' (vanity-bag) was made by Afshar nomads around 1900. Bags like this were highly-prized possessions amongst the nomads - for their own use only and never intended for sale or commercialism.
The front face of this chanteh consists of various stylised birds and animals - at the very top, a stylised peacock symbolising divine immortality and prosperity. The back of the bag comprises horizontal panels containing symbols - very meaningful to the nomadic woman who made this bag but lost in the passage of time!
The bag is in excellent condition with original selvedges, bound in different colours.
Little bags of this high quality today, are extremely rare with most being in private collections. This chanteh has just come out of a private UK collection where it has been treasured for many years.
Size: 26cm 23cm (10" x 9").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/LPN9
