Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Completely elemental in its charmingly naïve and spontaneous design, this compelling 19th century Trans-Caucasian tribal rug comes from the Shahsavan nomadic weaving tradition. Three diamond medallions contain darling tiny flower heads in pointillistic style, alert canines, shamanic human figures and other whimsical inclusions. The entirely successful color palette of Persian cobalt, madder red, bright copper, midnight indigo, champagne and sea green coalesce into an successful, spirited arrangement. In an extremely versatile dimension, this absolutely charming art rug is in very good pile condition at well over a century of age. Learn About This Rug Type
