My guess is Lur rather than Qashqai, due to the Knots per square inch, chunky design, typical colors and red wefts. One problem with dating material such as this is that even though the dyes are succulently appealing, many Lur tribes remained isolated even into the early 20th century until the repressive Shah confounded their existence.
4th quarter 19th century would not be out of the question for this bag. It could well have survived 30 or 40 years of tribal use before economic conditions necessitated its sale.
It has a rugged, visceral attractiveness.
