East Caucasus Kuba region Zeichur Rug

19th Century East Caucasus, Kuba region Zeichur Rug
The dense floral repeat seen in the field, executed in muted colours on a green ground, derives from French fabric designs and is only encountered in this form in Zeikhur rugs. Unlike the Georgian wavy vine border, the field design constitutes a deliberate departure from Caucasian traditions. Zeikhur rugs of this kind were commissioned by Russian officials or military officers living in the conquered province of Azerbaijan. They were also exported to the Czarist Empire where a fashion for Caucasian carpets soon emerged. – Well preserved,  original finishes all around.Very good high pile Size 97 x 303 cm Stock No 1479
