(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This unusually short rendition of the stirring Shirvan Karagashli design makes this piece especially attractive to Shirvan rug lovers. Typically presenting three or four hexagons along the central axis, this powerful rug is foreshortened presenting only two, but they are superbly mesmerizing with their uniquely aquamarine and vermillion centers. The crimson extensions with sawtooth edges complete this enigmatic regional pattern. With a tour-de-force complexity, the four borders regale viewers with their clarity, chromatic detail, and overall harmony. This piece is a striking example from a distinguished artistic tradition in excellent condition. Learn About This Rug Type
