Kuba Perepedil Rug
Late 19th Century East Caucasus, Kuba region Perepedil Rug
The distinguishing feature of Perepedil carpets is their unmistakeable, precisely drawn repeat of vurma motifs, star-shaped blossoms, four-legged animals and a wealth of smaller designs, which required a very fine weave for a proper representation. Due to the high proportion of white used here, it stands out strikingly and in razor-sharp detail from the blue-black ground of the field. Four borders presenting minutely drawn designs typical of the provenance provide the surround. – Good condition, original finishes all around.
