EXCEPTIONAL ANTIQUE SHAHSAVAN SUMAK SOFREH COVER, Northwest Persian tribal, Moghan area, circa: 1970’s. The exact size is: 4′-7″X6′-4″ (140cm X 193cm) A very finely woven Shahsavan cover/jajim composed of seven panels. The traditional design consists of narrow vertical stripes in white, brick red, sandy yellow, midnight blue and Prussian blue, alternately left plain or decorated with tiny flowering shrubs. Judging by the mellow, harmonious colors, this jijim was probably made in the surroundings of Ardabil. – no damages, in good overall condition. Provenance: Bought in person along with handful others from Gallerye Honar Bartar, Collection owned and operated by Mr. Mahmoud Asghari located in Abbasabad Tehran Bazzar, Tehran Iran. EXTREMELY STUNNING IN PERSON. Handles like a Kashmir pashmina shawl. All right, I am going to go out on a limb and declare that this complete cover collection is one of the finest quality specimens ever woven. There is NO other comparable example in all of the rug book literature on antique oriental weavings. ALL of the design motifs in the sumac technique are woven with silk and wool threads with the white areas being comprised of small amount of natural, ivory silk. Inside colorful narrow stripes we find meaningful geometric pattern and other figures.
