DAGHESTAN
Northeast Caucasian
4ft 2in x 6ft 4in
Circa 1875

Phenomenal clarity and shifting colors from sky blue to exotic azure to a rare aquamarine bring incredible presence to this compelling Daghestan antique carpet from the northeast Caucasus mountains. A stunning example of our extensive inventory of rare tribal Caucasian rugs, it is distinguished by the expert use of abrash (intentional color striation) underpinning the enchanting display of enigmatic motifs that imbue the composition with charismatic energy. The allure of this eminently collectible 140-year-old antique Caucasian rug, is enhanced by a virtually full-pile condition. (Featured in Claremont catalog Vol. 24, No. 3, page 6.)
