Antique Caucasian Karakashly Rug, Origin: Caucasus – This vibrant, beautifully styled antique Caucasian rug is a true-to-form representation of carpet types associated with the small yet distinctive village of Karagashly. The chic azure field is punctuated by angular Afshan-style calyces, notched rosettes and high-impact tiled compartments. These distinctive crimson tiles with their decorative centers, divergent decorations and notched indentations represent one of the most important and iconic local motifs. The decorative field has a strong simplified layout that highlights each isolated motif in a minimalist manner. In traditional Karagashly fashion, the impeccably drawn field is surrounded by an extraordinary collection of quintessential Caucasian borders. Superb leaf-and-winecup main borders anchor the lavish frame along with flower-filled lozenges and minor guardbands featuring softly colored S-hooks. This antique rug is a superb example of this up-and-coming local carpet style that is winning over designers and collectors.
