Antique Caucasian Shirvan Rug

About

Antique Shirvan rugs, origin: Caucasian, circa late 19th century. This archetypical antique Caucasian Shirvan rug is a stunning example of the local style and Caucasian symbolism. The traditional format incorporates a marvelous variety of stacked-lozenges that are set over a regal midnight blue field. Each lozenge features elegant strap work borders and a stunning variety of traditional symbols, including divided lozenges, eight-pointed stars and Memling-style dragon motifs. The obscure background is filled with a cornucopia of traditional symbols. Geometric humanoid motifs, divided lozenges, ornamental combs and amulets fill the background with a constellated pattern of formal symbols. Multiple sets of ornamental borders featuring angular turtle-like figures, honeycomb motifs and stepped lozenges embrace the exquisite field. In the regional style, this stunning antique rug features clear, crisp colors and a diverse assortment of traditional symbols.
