Excellent natural dye palette with green,teal,various blues,rust,sand,straw and red. navy border with doubly connected palmettes.
Fine weave on a cotton foundation, unusual and amusing iconography. Towns in bowls with banners: what do they represent? If anything. There is light allover wear commensurate to age,but very well preserved. Very soft texture.
From the best period of the Ferahan Sarouk era which ran from 1880 to 1910's.
