antique prayer rug marasali eastern caucasus

Antique Prayer Rug, Marasali, Eastern Caucasus



Item Ref


I have always loved the 'Marasali boteh' design - a boteh or stylised pine-cone or leaf motif peculiar to the weavers of Marasali in the eastern Caucasus. This stunning prayer rug was made during the last quarter of the 19th century with good, saturated vegetable dyes. It is in overall good condition albeit with evenly-low pile.
Size: 1.45m x 1.14m (4' 9" x 3' 9").
Viewing by appointment only.
