I love the indigo-blue ground in this small, square nineteenth century Shirvan rug from the eastern Caucasus incorporating a stunning array of natural colours throughout.
Looking closely at the design, there are 'birds-heads lozenges, floral motifs and zoomorphic bird-like creatures. The main ivory border with its continuous vine symbolising the eternal cycle of life, is a popular border in this part of the eastern Caucasus.
The pile, which was originally cropped short to give a beautifully defined pattern to the symbols, is now evenly-low all over. This is a great, collectible rug.
Size: 1.68m x 1.39m (5' 6" x 4' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
