Featured in our web exhibition entitled 'Front/Back - a Collection of Exquisite Small Persian Tribal Weavings' visible at www.albertolevi.com , this open saddle bag is a glorious example from the Basseri tribe, belonging to the Khamseh Confederacy from southern Persia. Woven with silky wool and showing a wonderful array of colors, it offers the added advantage of an intricately drawn flat woven back. Very good overall condition and quite finely woven (13 h x 20 v = 260 kpsi). Datable to circa 1870, it measures 95 x 55 cm (37.5 x 21.5 inches).
