19th C. Antique Timuri "baluch" Bag Face. Excellent Condition & All Natural Dyes:
BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE TIMURI (Baluch-in-name-only) SADDLEBAG FACING, West to Northwest Afghanistan along the Persian frontier region,last quarter of the19th century, and condition for the collector. Theapproximate size is:1'-6" x 1'-10" (46 x 56cm).Oftengrouped with"Baluch" weavings, this "Timuri" bag faceis all wool in construction with 100% natural, plant-derived, dyes. Old Timuri weavings are swarthy in nature and have a chameleon effect to the eye depending on the light source. This antique specimen has lusterous wool quality and deeply saturated dyes. The top and bottom ends bothretain remnants of the original weft-float brocade flat-weave finish. The side cords are original and were warpped with dark brown goat-hair, some of which is abraded, but does not detract from the eye. The pile is basically allover full with just a few,very minor areas of tinymoth bites having been re-knotted in the past andare difficult to see. The brown dye lot is slightly oxidized, but not yet corroded.The photos of this antique weaving were taken outside to best capture the true color palette.The rich indigo blue background colorcomes offdarker in appearance insidemy studio without direct lighting. The plant forms that adorn the field are associated with Dokhtar-e Ghazi prayer rugs, which makes sense since this tribe fromnorthwest Afghanistan are related to the Timuri.This lovely saddlebag faceis clean and collection ready. It displays nicely as a wall hanging with direct lighting to show off its true character.If you have any questions about this lovely antique Timuri textile relic, email Michael Phillipsor feel free to call my studio at: (303) 885-7599.
