Antique Karabagh Rug
Antique Karabagh Rug Description:
An early 20th century Karabagh rug, the abrashed pinkish brown field with an enlarged centerpiece of lush blossoms and vines with similar dark brown spandrels within a dark brown blossom border.
Karabagh is the name of a region in the Southern Caucasus where hand-knotted, pile Caucasian rugs have been produced since the eleventh century. Due to its location between the Black and Caspian Seas, as well as being bordered by Turkey and Iran, Karabagh has always been a melting pot of religions and cultures. This wonderful merger of various influences resulted in the birth of unique and enchanting antique carpets, widely desired by collectors and design aficionados alike. Although similar to other Caucasian rugs for sale in their coarse weave and symmetric knots, the rugs from Karabagh tend to be considerably larger.
