Antique Caucasian Kilim, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – Here is a truly wonderful antique rug – a Kilim made in Persia some time during the latter years of the nineteenth century. This rug represents something genuinely special, and is a testament to the artisans who produced it. A gorgeous piece, this rug possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors and experts, and would bring beauty and sophistication to any home. Double ram’s horns decorated with supplemental goz motifs, wolf’s mouth emblems and symbolic elibelinde figures with hooked arms form a repeating pattern of woven stripes across this traditional kilim. Each repeating pattern is separated by rows of single ram’s horn motifs, which continue the contrasting burnt orange and Persian blue color palette. Simply put, this rug is a remarkable piece of work. A traditional and exciting design and composition combine to make this Persian rug something more than a decorative piece: they combine to make it a veritable work of art.
