BIDJOV SHIRVAN, Southeast Caucasian
3ft 9in x 4ft 6in
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
We were astonished by this exceedingly rare, red-ground antique Bidjov Shirvan Caucasian rug. Beyond the field’s singular coloring, the design also is unprecedented in the spaciousness of its tribal motifs where traditionally they are tightly contained. These two artistically inspired departures have created a memorable, uniquely desirable antique carpet for lovers of these enigmatic tribal rugs. This Caucasian rug offers an abundant use of the prized Tyrian purple dye, spectacular serpentine Dragon motifs, and an innovative ring of rosettes along the edge of the field. Throughout, evocative and subtle abrash striation adds depth and movement to its balanced, clearly rendered archetypal motifs. From THE MONTREAL CACHE.
