(High-Decorative) Joyful whimsy emanates from this spirited Caucasian Kuba carpet. A unique, oversize center medallion of an exotic pale rose is flanked on either side by numerous endearing zoomorphic motifs. A fantastic array of highly appealing blues are a delight for the eye to relish and include hues of cerulean, sky, aqua and royal blue, all used with a dramatic use of abrash (i.e. intentional color striations). Worth noting is the deep emerald green found in only one small area of the medallion. In a remarkable heavier pile condition at well over a century of age, this tribal rug is an entrancing artwork that can be comfortably used virtually anywhere in the home. It would also show dramatically displayed as wall art. (INQUIRE ABOUT THIS RUG AT CLAREMONT 2, 1-800-883-1815) Learn About This Rug Type
