This circa 1880 Senna Saddle is very finely woven. It measures 3’6” X 3’5”. The saddle cover is laid out in a prayer design. The color appears green however the background is actually done in a pale blue with a yellow boteh design which comes together to make the rug appear green. The spandrels at the top of the prayer arch are a nicely drawn Herati design. The major border has a yellow ground with a unique and very beautiful design. This major border has reciprocals of leaf and flower motif. One is meandering and one is not. There are four small borders with dog tooth design which are ivory on a black ground. This saddle cover as far as I know is unique. It is full pile and in essentially mint condition. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance
