Photos Are Representative And Not Necessarily Exact For Color
Beautiful Bag Face - 1900s Antique Shirvan Rug - Caucasian Carpet - 2' x 4' ft.

Remarkable dark red background! Contains a center cross in the medallion - a product of Armenian rug weavers in the region.
Within the antique rugs milieu familiar to collectors and rug enthusiasts, no single group of rugs has had a more checkered or contested career than those woven by the Baluch tribes of western Afghanistan. Perhaps the most rudimentary (and most common) arguments against these tribal pieces came from decorators who often found Baluches to be too dark with a relatively restricted rustics of colors and minimal use of ivory or white. They also pointed to their fragility, due largely to the looseness of their weave and the softness of their wool.
Good condition for its age! No stains, no odor. Loose ends due to aging, with overall low pile and worn spots - as shown in pictures.
