South East Caucasus, Azerbaijan

Circa 1850s South East Caucasus, Azerbaijan Unusual Rug

Drawn with great precision, this carpet is a workshop product woven in the town of Khila situated west of Baku. Three large crosses placed on the central axis of the red field are accompanied by pairs of circular rosettes with striking outlines. Star-shaped blossoms cut in half by the lateral borders protrude into the field at the sides, and cloudbands as well as many small devices are distributed across the ground. The design of the blue main border, a vine decorated with birds and blossoms, is a reliable identifying feature of the provenance. – Very good condition, original finishes all around.Size 157 x 368 cm
