Antique Caucasian Shirvan Rug, Caucuses, c. 1920 – This truly impressive antique Caucasian rug is a fantastic composition, notable for its sumptuous allover pattern of geometric figures and remarkably beautiful patina. Antique rugs from the Caucuses, generally speaking, are prized by collectors for their commitment to traditional aesthetics and manufacturing techniques. This particular price is a shining example of that, especially in its field: for in addition to its successive rows of abstract geometric figures – which from a distance evoke floral undertones – this beautiful antique Oriental rug is also adorned with dozens of animal figures. Perhaps easy to miss on first glance, a closer look reveals that each geometric figure within this rug’s expansive field actually houses its own animal, right in the center. This delightful and aesthetically intriguing treatment of animal figures is something that can only be found in authentic antique rugs from the Caucuses. This gorgeous antique Shirvan carpet is a truly masterful composition, brimming over with rich cultural symbolism, and boasting a beautifully woven structure.
