This stunning antique Caucasian Karabagh rug is a delightful and intriguing long and narrow tribal hallway runner rug. Its slender length is accentuated by large floral rose designs in similar colors and designs that parade down the entire span of the antique carpet. These floral blotches give the feeling as though the roses are busting out of the ground in full bloom.
The central field appears even wider that is actually is because of the beautiful framing slender border that mirrors the roses in the field. These roses in the border are smaller but they too are seemingly bursting out of the ground – just like the ones in the main field. This creates a fascinating artistic tension and a sense of cohesion throughout the piece.
While the design is floral, the approach is less refined that we would see in the fine Persian rugs. Therefor, for people who are buying rugs, and love the look of the floral motifs, but are wanting more rustic looking rugs, this antique Caucasian runner rug would make a great option.
