New Afghan Gabbeh 6'3"×8'10"
Afghan versions of SW Persian simple-patterned Gabbeh rugs are another recent innovation. Here the abrashed blue field varies from light to almost sapphire, and the individual sections display small domestic animals, tall spindly shrubs and various geometric devices, in shades of cream, straw, red and charcoal. Dotted, zig-zag and lozenge – patterned separator bands. Field merges seamlessly into a plain tonally en suite border. Meaty handle, medium weave. As new condition.
