Antique Coucasian Shirvan
Antique Coucasian Shirvan Description:
Delicate vertical stripes paint the field of this fine Shirvan prayer rug. The wide turquoise border creates a beautiful contrast, both in color and motif. The master weaver of this piece surely took pride in this remarkable piece.
Most Caucasian rugs display bold geometric or simplistic botanical designs in primary, usually dim hues. The general color palette of rugs for sale from the Caucasus consists of toned, autumnal shades such as brown, black, crimson, ochre, forest green, with accents of navy blue and indigo appearing more sporadically. The most unusual of antique rugs are the rose-patterned ones, clearly created in response to Western tastes.
