Antique Moghan Rug, Caucasian, Late 19th Century – Archetypal Memling guls create a columnar allover pattern using a tiled composition and motifs rendered in contrasting colors. This important regional pattern features a geometric format that makes wonderful use of the traditional Memling gul. Dainty floral guard bands featuring an angular chevron pattern and decorative borders, which are chock full of symbols, enclose the classically composed field. Octagonal border motifs mirror the tiled elements used within the field while extended turtle fins create a strong counter change pattern against the light background. In the tribal style, this antique rug features dominant borders and narrow sections of barber-pole stripes that divide the tiled field and separate the borders and guard bands. Woven in the late 19th century, this antique Moghan rug from the Caucasus features a traditional color scheme that includes clear reds, pure whites, olive green and oxidized blue that displays a subtle abrash.
