Antique Caucasian Karabagh Rug, Origin: Caucasus, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – Unique and quite beautiful at the same time, this antique carpet effectively communicates some of the more nuanced and notable stylistic trends that characterize the finest Caucasian carpets. First, a relatively narrow border of an almost teal blue frames the piece. A simple vine scroll and floral pattern infuses it with depth. Within the field of the carpet, one encounters a complex allover pattern of beautifully woven and unusual geometric floral designs. Each flower is impeccably shaped and detailed. A hypnotic pattern of whites, reds, and blues repeats throughout the carpet, giving the entire piece a feeling of movement. Impressively sharp for a piece of its age, this antique Karabagh carpet from the Caucasus is an exciting and beautifully composed example.
