Southeast Caucasian Antique Rug
3' 6" x 7' 5" (107cm x 226cm) Late 19th Century
This dramatic antique Caucasian Baku rug boasts an astonishing complexity of design that brings together an eclectic mixture of village rug and tribal carpet elements. Each cruciform medallion is rendered slightly differently, with pinpoint deconstructed blossoms enhancing the nomadic, asymmetrical aesthetic. The overlap of these iconic compartmented rosettes appears only in the vertical borders, creating a whimsical sense of dimensionality and depth. Subtle shifts in border patterning and the selective celadon to azure abrash striation of the field, illustrate the idiosyncratic additions to this stirring 19th century Caucasian rug's captivating performance.
