South Caucasian Chondzoresk Dated Rug

1855 Dated South Caucasian Chondzoresk Rug

This red-ground Chondzoresk displays three octagonal medallions in green and dark blue, each containing eight snake motifs arranged concentrically around a box shape. The spaces not covered by the main design are filled with stars, stepped polygons, diamonds and tiny scattered motifs. Frequently encountered in the Baku region, the design of the main border – dragon figures stylised to S-forms – is rare in Chondzoresk carpets. – Slight signs of wear in the pile, minor restored areas, good overall condition.Dated 1271 = 1855 Size 138 x 280 cm
