Default About 2 or 3 caucasian saddlebags...

Hello,
I have recently purchased the items you may see at the link
https://photos.app.goo.gl/mwMf9TDqDJvQVA7Q6
They should be 3 saddlebags from Caucasian area but maybe the rug with the blue background is just a carpet; they should have been made in wool at the beginning of XXth century and their sizes are cm72x79, cm144x86 and cm105x55.
Mostly interesting, at my poor of knowledge eyes, could be the one, square in shape, with four blue birds (?), one at each quarter.
Please, I would like to know what do you think about them and where they are from.
Thanks a lot for your kind attention and best regards,
Luciano

Hi Luciano,
The first one is a Baluch. Nice. See more of this type here:

For the others, I need more time.
Perhaps the last bag could be the closest one to the Caucasus.

Regards,

Filiberto

The other two are, probably, Kurdish. North West Persia.

Hi Luciano,

As Filiberto noted, the first is a common type of Baluch bag face. There was an earlier Turkotek salon on them:

Here is one that is quite similar:


The second and third pieces are both pillows. The second is a Baluch balisht that was probably woven towards the end of the twentieth century. The third appears to be an Anatolian yastik from about the same time.
