Antique Afghan Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – This evocative antique Afghan rug / torba features an exceptional kejebe design surrounded by beautifully patterned borders and a long row of inky fringe. Often associated with Salor and Turkmen trappings, the crenellated kejebe design features precise geometric figures that create a stunning counter change pattern.
