Antique Lesghi Rug, Lesghian Tribes, South-Western Caucasus.



Item Ref



This rug is amazing! Full pile and great overall condition for a rug made in Lesghi territory, south-western Caucasus around 1880-1890. The colours are fabulous - rich vegetable dyes predominate - and the glowing indigo-blue field containing 3 'Lesghi stars' outlined in madder-red and beautiful rich green. The main ivory border is powerful and symbolically frames and protects the inner Paradise. A truly magnificent, collectable rug.
Size: 1.83m x 1.22m (6' 0" x 4' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/DR4
