Sumak mafrash front panel, Shahsavan Confederacy , Boz Qush mountains, Hashtrud-Miyaneh region , Northwest Persia, Circa 1870, 54 x 98 cm (21.5 x 38.5 in.) Knot count: 23 wrapping wefts/inch. Colours: coral pink, maroon, apricot, light blue, dark blue, blue-green, light yellow, dark brown, ivory (9). Condition: three old, small areas of restitching otherwise untouched. Notes: I have come to familiarize myself with this distinct group of weavings through the ‘Shahsavan Weavings Group’ on facebook https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.249478438449106&type=1 for which i am grateful to Raoul Tschebull and Peter William Hansen. This group is characterized by a signature style which is exemplified here, by a fine weave and yet by a sturdy handle, with the warps being entirely in cotton.
