Antique Caucasian Shirvan Rug, Country of Origin: Caucasia, Circa Date: 1920– This antique Caucasian rug features a creamy tone overlaid with patterns in black, white and red, with hints of pale blue. The inner field is symmetrical about the vertical axis, nesting a column of ornate diamonds between two larger lines of hexagonal designs. A checkered band of tricolored squares displaying pips like dice separates the columns, zigzagging between the decorated forms. A cream border filled with geometric flowers surrounds the central rectangle, its simple white blossoms on branches interspersed with larger black, white and red flowers. A narrow band full of stars and diagonal shapes in light colors edges the whole of this antique rug.
