Northeast Caucasian Antique Rug

(Connoisseur-Caliber - Investment Level)
("New Arrivals Gallery") In superb heavier pile condition, this memorable antique Kuba immediately astounds the viewer. A deeply saturated palette of natural dyes magnificently enhances the luster of the lanolin-rich wool used in the best Caucasian weaving. Skillfully wrought shades of goldenrod, oxblood and azure invigorate blossoms on a luminous cobalt field. Its ivory field border of double ram's horn tree motifs surrounded by bird-like figures is highly unique, as are its two dissimilar guard stripes. This delightful area size clearly transmits the joyful spirit of the Caucasian people.
