Mosque at peace


Jim Cotter submits this variant on the pre-war mosque motif. Compare with the previous post where we found a similar early Baluch rug in Parsons…

In appearance it appears to be about 20 years old, but it has had no wear, so it’s hard to tell whether it dates all the way back to the pre-war era. While the main field colour is this strange bleached blue-grey (which we’ve never seen before), and its handle is quite coarse, the kilim ends show a degree of care in its production.

We think the seven minarets is a very interesting (and unusual?) device.
