Description

Here we have an unusual prayer rug from Gendje in the eastern Caucasus, made around 1860-1870 with an ivory mihrab and minimal use of small stylised flowers. The field design below the prayer niche has a typical Gendje design comprising small 'hook' symbols on diagonal bands. The main border too, is stunning, and comprises family unity symbols in wonderful shades of natural-dye colours. All in all, this is one of the most beautiful examples of Gendje rugs I've ever come across and I love the small size of 1.45m x 0.82m (4' 9" x 2' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
