Antique Caucasian Seychour Runner Rug, Origin: Caucasus, Circa: Turn of the Twentieth Century – Here is an absolutely stunning antique Oriental rug – an antique Seychor rug, hand-woven by the great carpet-producers of the Caucasus around the turn of the twentieth century. Tribal rugs from the Caucasus have long been admired for their traditional aesthetics and free treatment of form. This particular example, while certainly characterized by the penchant for geometry and abstraction that is so important to the traditional rug-makers of the area, is characterized instead by an absolutely incredible attention to detail. Almost every square centimeter of this gorgeous runner features some sort of detail work, and whether that detail work be a floral or vine scroll element, a geometric figure or outline, the one thing that unifies each of them is a total mastery of craft and precision of execution. All of this is to say nothing of the intriguing, beautiful color palette of blues, reds, purples, yellows, and a gorgeous, clean, stark white, a shade that gives an added dimension to the rest of the piece. A rare and incredible example, this antique runner from the Caucasus is a first-rate antique Oriental rug.
