(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery")A venerable artifact from a time and place that has changed forever, this full-pile what is known as a Caucasian “Long Rug" is an example of the great, variety of high-mountain weaving from Kazak region at the turn of the 20th century. Typically, not a size and shape that was used in yurts, it was likely woven for sale to faraway ports in Europe or for an aristocratic home in the city of Baku along the shore of the Caspian Sea. For evidence of its tribal origin, note the irregularity of the color and the drawing most easily seen in the crenelated borders where color shifts and weaving wobbles charmingly. Its carnelian red field sparkles with tiny elements of ivory and yellow, beautifully united into an organically shaped latticework containing countless 'sprig and flower' motifs. Even this latticework attests to the attention to much attention to detail. Learn About This Rug Type
