Table Cover (Ru-Korssi)


Colonel Boucher's favorite piece among all the pieces in his collection was this small table cover. Several features, including the dominant color of violet-brown in the field, the red-and-blue checked woolen selvage and the ivory rays along the sides of the field are often found in rugs from Western Afghanistan.
