Beautiful Roomsize Antique Soumak Caucasian Rug 49340, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Caucasian Rug, Circa Date: 1900 – The details on this magnificent antique Caucasian Soumak rug are so precise! The viewer’s eyes immediately move to the center of the flat woven rug, with four large medallions showing octagonal centers with bright backgrounds. The shape of this beautiful room size rug builds from that point by adding a dark-toned, diamond-shaped perimeter that is enclosed by minuscule scroll-like patterns, with crosses reaching back toward the center. Varied designs dance inside the inky background, including flowers, arrows and Celtic knots. Outside these central medallions, larger versions of these images are interspersed, forming loose borders and rows that surround the medallions. Finished by a wide border arrangement, tiny lines of flower motifs surround stylized chevron lines, eventually meeting the most delicate waves that dance around the entire antique Caucasian rug.
