    “Size: 3’5″” x 9′ ft
    The Caucasian carpets are from the areas south, east and north of the mountain chain of the Caucasus. Carpets, made before 1925, can be divided into five groups namely; Kazak, Karabach, Sjirvan, Kuba and Dagestan carpets. The carpets from the Karabach area often have finer patterns. The significance of these beautiful carpets are their geometrical patterns, often with an imaginative and plentiful way of expression. Sometimes curvilinear animal and pattern figures occur in the carpets.

    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.

  • Special Shirvan – 1890s Antique Caucasian Rug – Oriental Tribal Runner – 3’4″ x 7’6″ ft $1,099.99

    Size: 3’4″ x 7’6″ ft

    Shirvan is located just to the south of the Caucasus mountain range and is to the east of Gendje and to the west of the Baku peninsula. Local weaving tradition in this region excelled in exploring the numerous possible variations using a limited palette of color to maximal effect.

    The area rugs and a very limited supply of antique runners woven in the Shirvan district are the most finely knotted and sophisticated antique carpets of the Caucaus region. For example, this iconic Caucasian Shirvan antique rug is striking in its elemental simplicity. Its innovative twin medallions are rendered in stark clarity upon a backdrop of the deepest indigo, giving each facet of this antique Caucasian Shirvan rug’s original geometric ornamentation great graphic impact. As in so many of the most accomplished works of art, not a single line is wasted, as all aspects are brought together with a natural, profoundly satisfying balance and symmetry.

    Antique Shirvan Caucasian rugs of this caliber ceased to be produced around the turn of the 20th century. “With the completion of the Trans-Caucasian railway in the 1870s, the whole area rapidly opened up to European dealers, who were capable of buying on an unprecedented scale, and huge numbers of rugs were transported westwards from Baku and Gendje. As a result of European demand, Shirvan and Kuba rug design in the late 19th century initially became more intricate, with increasingly fine weaves and knots. By the 1890s, this unrelenting demand led to the establishment of carpet workshops where commercial dyes were used. Designs were simplified and became symmetrical.

    Fair condition for its age! Professionally washed and cleaned. No stains, no odor. Sides and ends original. Contains wear and low pile with some foundation showing – as shown in pictures.
