KARAGASHLI SHIRVAN, Southeast Caucasian
4' 2" x 6' 1"
(“Spring 2019 New Acquisition“) This scintillating Caucasian Karagashli Shirvan is drawn with breathtaking precision. The characteristic motif of Karagashlis is the squared flowers and the L-shaped leaves and here they are animated with stunning coral red. Each motif in the field is drawn with crystalline-like clarity. The dramatic field is further enhanced by the classic ‘Kufic’ border, a complex pattern that is especially challenging to draw. This century-old rug's condition is excellent with heavy pile, a sturdy foundation and no signs of the passage of time, making it ideal for a well-trodden area.
