A charming Ersari carpet with lustrous wool and fine weaving giving rise to the clarity of its drawing. Aa an early example, it not only has better quality wool but its pattern is simpler and more naive in comparison to the later examples. The muted red terracotta field is attractive with a natural colour variation (abrash) giving depth and great richness to the simple drawing. There is a touch of green which is uncommon for this type of weaving. A classic example with tribal charm to blend in a wide variety of settings.
