Antique Karabagh Botanic Brown, Beige Handmade Wool Rug BB7462 6'8" × 12'9" $14,000
Karabagh rugs are a vital part of Azerbaijani culture, just like Persian carpets are for Iran – they have been included in the UNESCO’s list of Representative Masterpiece of Intangible Heritage in a gesture of appreciation. This early 20th century Russian Karabagh rug (made circa 1920) beautifully shows the unique style of Caucasian weaving. Its deep brown field carries an allover beige trellis of floral vinery linked at fixed intervals by simple diamond shapes within a delicate beige flowering vinery border with four brown palmette accents. It is customary for Bessarabian rugs to have light motifs presented against a dark background. The color palette of brown and beige is versatile, ready to complement a wide variety of décors. The execution of this antique Karabagh rug definitely matches its artistic quality – the rug was carefully hand-knotted of wool by a skilled artisan thanks to which it looks as if it was just taken down from the looms. If maintained properly, this Karabagh rug will serve its owners for generations, bringing in its oriental charm.
