Antique Karabagh Soumak, Origin: Caucasus, Circa: Late 19th Century – Here is a truly wonderful antique Oriental rug – a Karabagh Soumak piece made in the Caucuses 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 truly stunning piece, this rug possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors and experts, and would bring beauty and sophistication to any home. A western-inspired floral design of leafy vines and bouquets reminiscent of William Morris textiles unfolds against the dramatic black ground of this elegant antique Karabagh. The vinescroll border is so finely proportioned that it functions as little more than a band or outline, allowing the lush field design to predominate. Simply put, this rug is a remarkable piece of work. A beautiful and impressive design and composition combine to make this rug something more than a decorative piece: they combine to make it a veritable work of art.
