Description:

From the Collection of Michael Craycraft.

The principal design element is a central cruciform.

The central cruciform and its modest variations are traditional among a variety of tribal groups along the east Persian-west Afghanistan border.

It is the ghostly blue tonality of this weaving which is uncommon.

Given the precise design execution and the finest of the weave this piece may very well have been a contribution to one's dowry.
