Antique Caucasian Rug BB6980

Price: $5,000

Caucasus, the narrow strip of land between the Black and Caspian Seas, is not only home to the towering and mighty mountains – it is a cradle of extraordinary Caucasian rugs, nowadays desired by antique carpet connoisseurs more than ever. Their uniqueness and exceptionality is made up of many components, the most important being probably Caucasian people’s deep spirituality and profound understanding of life.

The antique rug before your eyes is a marvelous example of Caucasian craftsmanship. First of all, it has a classic coloration consisting of dark brown background and colorful motifs, including shades of green, red, blue, beige and yellow. The rich color palette is muted so that it maintains the vibrancy but evades gaudiness. The main field is covered in an allover pattern of diamonds within medallions that symbolize protection against the Evil Eye, and surrounded by a series of borders with further geometric motifs.

Next to the super chic design, the antique rug can boast of impeccable execution. It was thoroughly hand-knotted of top-notch wool in accordance with centuries-old techniques. If properly maintained, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
