Extremely Rare, Unique, or Collectors Pieces from our Private Collection

Motasham Kashan Sultan's Complete Saddle Set

This Saddle Set has been in the Deverian family for over 100 years.  It has over 420 knots per square inch.  The piece is Museum Quality.  It is extremely rare to find a complete Saddle Set with 4 pieces consisting of a large blanket which went next to the horse's hide; a smaller piece that was designed to cover the saddle; and two smaller pieces that covered the stirrups with silk roses.  This is all woven as fine as needle-point and soft as a kittens ear.  It has all the shades of the jungle forest on an ivory background.  It portrays an Persian hunter's paradise.   Hounds are seen in full cry, light colored fawns, darken deer, bronze colored antelope, and even the King of Beasts, with his mate, yawning a bit to show her red silk tongue.  All enclosed in a red & blue border.  It was obviously woven for an elegant Prince of Persia who shared his luxurious life with his much beloved horse.

It is in excellent condition except where the saddle rubbed against the riders legs.  The Grace of the motifs, the combination of colors, places this saddle set in the highest rank of art.
