A Captivatingly Beautiful Tribal Design Antique Caucasian Karabagh Runner Rug, Origin: Caucasus, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – A long and narrow runner length Karabagh carpet, this antique Caucasian rug is a uniquely beautiful work, the tremendous detail in which reveals a carefully planned and executed design. First, a comely series of borders surrounds the perimeter of the piece, featuring elegant vine scrolls of green that blossom into beautiful, multicolored flowers and blooms. Ineffably and compellingly appealing, these borders effectively set the one for the remainder of the piece. First, a series of ivory corner pieces, similarly bedecked with flowers, rests within the borders. A large and geometric medallion stands at the center of the field, its breadth spanning from one border to the other. Meanwhile, a deep royal blue, in this beautiful tribal antique Caucasian Karabagh runner rug, serves as the background color for the field, against which is set a simple and beautiful arrangement of vine scrolls and comely blossoms. A beautiful and intriguing work, this antique rug is a unique example.
In design, these antique rugs are similar to antique Kazak rugs, but you find many motifs and elements that are unique to the area as well. This Caucasian rug is from the southeastern area of the Caucasus Mountains, which is perfect for producing wool that is soft and durable. This area of the world is isolated and remote. The tribal carpets were woven using only what was available to them in the local area. It would not be until the 1870s when the Transcaucasian Railway would allow the rest of the world to see these beautiful rugs.
The area rugs of this region use a distinctive technique with two rows of weft between each row of knots. This gives them extra strength and highlights the utilitarian nature of these pieces. These Karabagh rugs were created for warmth and protection against the harsh elements. In our modern homes, this creates a soft, warm piece that adds an element of coziness to the room.
This antique Caucasian Karabagh rug is beautiful, and it is a rare find because it represents a people and culture that during this time were still pretty much untouched by the modern world. This is a great piece for people who are looking to buy rugs that are more tribal in look and feel.
This Karabagh is a perfect piece for a Boho Chic room where it represents an authentic piece of tribal art. It is also an excellent addition to a collection because older rugs from the area are hard to find on the open market.
