("New Arrivals Gallery") At once symmetrically structured and improvisationally detailed, this brilliantly composed mid-19th century rug hails from the wealthy port of Baku on the shore of the Caspian Sea. It is an incredibly rare, deeply enrapturing composition that is certain to become a crown jewel of even the most consummate assemblage of Caucasian rugs. With its soaring level of ambition never to draw any design quite the same a second time, this fabulously preserved piece demonstrates expressively stylized tribal motifs coupled with an expansive palette of exquisite tropical colors. Proportionally grand dodecagon medallions are hand-drawn with individualistic nuances of tint and ornament. Masterful hues of rare pistachio green, madder red, and bright sky blue, enhance a navy field filled with energetic semiotic tribal devices. The virtuoso border suite expresses exceptional weaving agility that wondrously complements the whole.
