This strongly collectible Caucasian flat-weave carpet presents a notably dexterous, extremely skilled Soumac embroidery technique. Mature, time softened hues of brick red, sandstone and azure to cobalt blue, accompanied by a rarely seen fawn-hued primary border, are set aglow by an enrapturing patina resulting from its significant 150 years of age. Adding to its collectibility is its captivating artistry, including a mesmerizing series of borders, each presenting entirely unique, inventive Caucasian designs.
