Item Ref



Small rugs like this one from the Gendje area in the south-west Caucasus are unusual.
The striking diagonal bands of indigo-blue and golden yellow fill the central field disappearing under the borders and out into infinity. Thus the weaver has captured a small part of Paradise and protected it by surrounding it with stunning borders. The ivory border is particularly attractive and the rug is complete albeit some minor loss to the lower outer border. The wool is lustrous and in full pile all-over. A superb little rug made circa 1900.
Size: 1.53 x 1.16m (5' 0" x 3' 10").
Viewing by appointment only.
