Item# 80-019577 







Description

A beautiful textile fragment woven in Iran in the second half of the sixteenth century, once part of the central field of a huge carpet, is in the Museums collection. This magnificent piece exhibits the use of jufti (paired) knotting, characteristic of a small group of carpets and fragments attributed to the northeastern Iranian province of Khurasan. The carefully drawn flowers, incorporating serrated curling leaves, resemble those of the so-called saz style, which became popular in Iran and Turkey in the sixteenth century. The ornate pattern on our porcelain mugs is taken from this splendid textile.

Includes 2 mugs. Porcelain, with decal application. Gift boxed. Dishwasher and microwave safe. 12 oz. each. 3 1/4''H each.
