Late 19th Century
A brilliant saffron ground powerfully supports the rhythmic, painstakingly detailed lattice design of this captivating antique Caucasian Daghestan long rug. This 19th century tribal carpet's unusually heightened clarity and precision is evident in every motif, especially the serrated sawtooth sections that enclose each deconstructed blossom. An adventurous, spirited color palette is also evident in the majestic borders, where elegant rosettes continually transition through the widest spectrum of natural dyes that this Daghestan rug's folk art weavers could produce.
