Antique Tribal Afghan Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – This marvelous and tribal design antique Afghan torba showcases a sophisticated latticework repeating pattern surrounded by intricately decorated borders. This rustic torba depicts ancient duality symbols set in an elegant latticework grid. Traditional polychromatic fringes with long fluid strands of yarn emphasize the tribal appearance of this antique Afghan trapping. The rich rose-red field is dotted with lovely double-ram’s horn motifs that take on a flower-like appearance when paired with the saturated cerise background and tender olive green latticework figures that encircle each motif. Intricate woven borders embellished with barber-pole stripes and minute symbols reinforce the traditional tribal theme that torbas and other trappings are known for.
