KILIM
A Camel Hair Sofreh
Number 018 Size 215 X 130 Origin Shushtar, SW Persia
Style Kheshti Materials Camel Hair Age Early 20th Century
A perfectly preserved sofreh kilim spread from Shushtar. The fineness of the thread and its magnificent natural color (best seen in the wide outer strip) are wonderful. What is unusual is the series of beacon-like forms at the upper end of the field which break up the symmetry and give a somewhat directional look to the composition.
