Karabagh Antique Carpet
Karabagh Antique Carpet Description:
Karabagh rugs can boast of one of the oldest and most varied design traditions of any antique Caucasian rugs. Most importantly, however, they represent the best quality and firmness of the weave compared all other styles of Caucasus. The one before your eyes was clearly inspired with highly ornamental French carpets of Aubusson or Savonnerie. Its dusty rose and sage main field carries staggered enlarged palmette-formed medallions containing ovals with floral motifs within a dark brown blossom and a vinery main border.
Although quite daring and opulent, the entire rug is balanced and utterly elegant. Toned shades of the color palette help the composition maintain harmony, while playful accents of rose pink enliven the design. This remarkable Karabagh rug was masterfully hand-crafted of the finest wool in centuries-old weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. Thanks to such thorough making it has survived over a hundred years without any signs of blemish in structure or color and will surely serve its lucky owners for generations. Due to its palatial appeal, this antique carpet will be perfect for all classically arranged interiors but it may also become the focal point of any minimalistic décor.
