East Caucasus, Kuba region Perepedil Rug

Late 19th Century East Caucasus, Kuba region Perepedil Rug

The distinguishing feature of Perepedil carpets is their unmistakeable, precisely drawn repeat of vurma motifs, star-shaped blossoms, four-legged animals and a wealth of smaller designs, which required a very fine weave for a proper representation. Due to the high proportion of white used here, it stands out strikingly and in razor-sharp detail from the blue-black ground of the field. Four borders presenting minutely drawn designs typical of the provenance provide the surround. – Good condition, original finishes all around.Size 120 x 190 cm
