Sumak bedding bag end panel

Circa 1860
Hashtrud-Miyaneh region, Northwest Persia
55 x 46 cm
1'9" x 1'6"

Bedding bags with this repeating cruciform motif are typical of the northern area of Miyaneh, which together with the nearby river area of Hashtrud defines a region from which originate a group of weavings with distinct aesthetic features. The generous spacing employed for each motif, enhanced by the contrast with its negative form in ivory cotton, together with the intensity of the blue, blue-green and red dyes, makes this a highly desirable jewel of a weaving.
