Antique Ersari Turkmen torba of very large size, with turreted gul design. Probably by the Ersari of Northern Afghanistan.

Outstanding condition with very slight even wear. It is rare to find an example in such an excellent state of preservation, the torba retains its long tassels and decorative braiding; it also has the original hanging loops to the top corners.
