5.9 x 9.11 Antique South Caucasian Carpet, Probably Karabagh, Circa 1900

Of large size for an antique Caucasian rug, this piece was probably woven in the southern Caucasus, probably in the Karabagh region, although it is possibly from the Kazak area further west. It is large enough to be considered a “carpet” (larger than 6′ x 9′) rather than a “rug” and could fill a small room or foyer well. It would also work well at the end of a room with other carpets filling other sections of the room

A green, Keyhole medallion floats on a cobalt blue field which is decorated with stylized flowers, animals and geometric motifs. The Reciprocal Trefoil trim along the edge of the field is a great feature.
