South Caucasian Azerbaijan Fragment Rug

18th Century South Caucasian Azerbaijan Fragment Rug

A massive design bar of five large rectangles with serrated outlines lies on the central axis of the earth-brown field, flanked by huge pairs of sickle leaves on both sides. The ground is covered in Talish rosettes and a variety of blossoms. The unusually narrow border shows double hooks lined up in a row. This rare rug was probably woven in the Karabagh region. A distinctly older example of this rare group used to be in the "Orient Stars" Collection Size 118 x 161 cm
