Mid Century Afghani Baluch Prayer rug with bright red, white and dark navy indigo wool handwoven

Baluch Prayer Rug - 2' x 3'10

Regular price $350.00 Sale

This Baluch prayer rug was handwoven during the middle of the 20th century on the border or Eastern Iran and Western Afghanistan. The field is composed of a directional prayer niche with a slender tree-of-life central motif that fills the ivory mihrab completely. Following the shape of the mihrab is a small border of eight pointed stars. The two spandrels at the top of the rug on either side of the niche are also ivory backed, but have a simpler, more stylized design. Multiple borders in varying shades of red complete the design. 

In very good condition, signs of wear consistent with age. Low pile, with a sturdy handle.
