Shirvan Marasali Rug

East Caucasus, Shirvan Marasali Prayer Rug
19th Century Brilliantly coloured botehs of diverging interior design with deeply serrated outlines form a dense repeat of offset rows in the midnight blue field; a wide prayer arch has been incorporated into the design at the upper end. The white-ground main border of abstract birds is flanked by secondary borders of small star-shaped blossoms attached to a red vine. The characteristic shape of the botehs, the fine weave and silk wefts indicate that this Shirvan prayer rug belongs to the Marasali group. – Signs of age and wear. Both sides and both ends rewoven, uniformly low pile.Size 115 x 155 cm
