Early 20th Century Afshar Sofreh Rug

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES
A very striking, exceptional example.

Dating to the early part of the twentieth century and in superb condition. It is woven using wool for both the warp and weft threads which dates this prior to the 1930's when cotton began to be used for the warp.

The wool has aged wonderfully, giving this a huge array of colours (this is known as "Abrash" and is the result of different batches of dyed wool ageing and changing at different rates as the rug ages. You just can't get this on a new rug). There are no losses or damage to mention, minor signs of ageing/wear in places but you do need to look hard, this in excellent condition and at least 90 years old.

Sofreh are small tribal rugs used for serving food in the tent. This one is typical in both size and design, being 4ft square. It is a flat weave kilim and very hard wearing and durable.

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
